"not alot"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

not alot

What could be improved

the place is filthy - i visited every day for 5 days and corridors/stairs arent being cleaned. you never see a cleaner.

no smoking site - that's a laugh. smokers are sat in lined up wheel chairs outside the main entrance door. vistors have to walk through cloud of smoke & fag ends. disgusting. nothing is done to move people away or enforce.

carpark charges are extortionate

security on baby ward abysmil - buzz to enter but then a hoard of people just walk in.

nurses sat looking busy in the reception area whilst the auxillaries look after patients/babies.

then we have medical negligence due to change overs in shift.

disruption on the ward - women arriving all times of day/night and then up chatting with their mates, etc whilst others trying to sleep/rest. should be curfew times/lights out. the person i was visiting was exhausted with it all

long treck from entrance to any of the wards - not good for disabled or elderly

Anything else?

get the place cleaned

start fining the smokers
