"Admission to urgent care centre"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I was admitted to Blackpool Victoria Hospital on Wednesday night due to a very rapid high heart rate, I was in there for a total 4 and a half hours, seen within 15 minutes of being admitted. I was quickly sent to Resus and was treated by a team of very highly competent, friendly and knowledgeable. I would like it noted that I was very impressed with the response and treatment I received, and the friendliness of the hospital staff
