"everybody involved in my treatment ..."

About: Furness General Hospital

What I liked

everybody involved in my treatment was very friendly and positive but also honest about my injuries after a motorcycle accident .the explained every step of my treatment to both myself and my wife which helped reasure my wife that i would recover.

the nurses in both the icu unit and ppu unit also to time to comfort my wife when she was getting upset.i dont think i could have been treated better anywhere else and i feel i owe my life to all the staff who worked so hard during my treatment.

What could be improved

i dont think anything could be improved

Anything else?

i'd like to thank all the staff on icu and everyone else on the ppu unit for working so hard and always putting a smile on my face despite the pain.

it felt like all staff genuinely cared about me and my family and made my hospial stay very pleasant despite my injuries. i would also like to thank all the doctors and consultants involved in my treatment. many thanks to all.
