"Fantastic and speeedy treatment following..."

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I have nothing but praise and gratitude to the team of doctors and nurses involved in my treatment and recovery. From referral by me GP I had received an investigative procedure, followed by diagnosis, CTC and MRI scan all within a 3 week period and Christmas was celebrated within this 3 week. Waiting time for my operation was kept to a minimum during which time the team of specialist nurses helped me to come to terms and understand the diagnosis and treatment.

After care in the surgical high care ward and the final ward before discharge was equally excellent. Many thanks to everyone involved.
