"Cardiology current in patient"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

I have been treated several times in the last few years and on this ward and every experience has been positive. In fact I pecifically asked my Cardiologist if I could be ad missed to this ward as I feel so safe here. I lost lots of weight but this was planned as I have Heart Failure and loosing this fluid was an imperative. Consultant, registrars, junior doctors and all staff including the Sisters have shown kindness and friendliness and compassion. I am a complex case but together we work in partnership to get everything right. I am so grateful to all these staff and so sorry that others feel that they have had a lesser service.
