"Admission for Fistula Bleeding"

About: Royal Lancaster Infirmary

On the evening of Tuesday 9th August l was taken by Ambulance to have my Fistula seen to as it had been bleeding for a few hours. There were two Nurses on duty and they looked after me like l was their own mother. My name is Maureen Ashton from Cumbria. I'm 70 years old.

There was also a Doctor who looked after me and glued my Fistula as it still would not stop bleeding.

They were really marvellous and on behalf of myself and my Family please would you pass on my grateful Thanks.

Wonderful treatment as always from our Nurses and Doctors. Thankyou.

I want to say a Big Thankyou to the four Paramedics who looked a after me and took me to Hospital.

If you could pass my Thanks on l would be grateful although l am going to try to E Mail the Ambulance Service.

Well done all of you. You made me feel like a Princess and as l am very poorly both Mentally , Emotionally and Physically it meant a great deal to me.

All the kindness was much appreciated. Thanks to all of you. Maureen Ashton. xxx
