"Husband blue lighted to here from blackpool"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

My husband was admitted to Blackpool vic on 15 th juse 2016 where they saw an anurism he was blue lighted to Preston hospital where they could not find an anurism. They done scans n bloods. Scan showed problem with his bowel. Blood test came back as gangrene in his system. They rushed him to theatre where they found 55% of his bowel had twisted and become gangrenous they removed it with part of his intestines. The level of care has been phenomenon. He is still a patient in here n could be home by the weekend. The staff have all been very helpful nothing is too much for them. I would highly recommend preston hospital
