"Treatment of elderly father"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

My elderly Father was admitted to A&E on Saturday 19/12/15 with double vision, chronic head pain and high blood pressure. I would like to say that the care he received was excellent at all times both in A&E and A ward. All staff were very kind and couldn't do enough from the porters through to the doctors. This hospital is a shining example of how it should be done. Thank you to all staff involved especially the staff on duty in A ward on Saturday night, you were brilliant! He is now recovering at home.
