When your loved ones go into hospital it is a very worrying time for both them and the person left at home. Tonight I drove in the rain down the motor way from Blackpool to Preston Hospital. I got there early as it is impossible to park most times and went and sat in the hospital cafe till 6.30 visiting time on the ward. I went by the hospital clock and made my way to ward b2 I arrived at the ward and went to my partners bed and sat down. A nurse came into the bay and said The person in charge said I would have to go and stand outside the ward because I was one minute early, yes one whole minute but was told if I walked to the door could come back in. I know they have to have rules but really is this not taking I'm in charge a bit too far.
