"My wife last visited as as an outpatient..."

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

What I liked

My wife last visited as as an outpatient. The doctor did not carry out any examination. After reading the test results. He said "as you have so many little things wrong with you I think we will leave it at that" and discharged my wife who is still not well.

Also so much laser treatment was given to her eye that she is now almost blind in it.

Some years ago she had a abscess on her breast and the operation has left her with on breast smaller than the other and the operation site a mess. Without any warning.

So if you want safe treatment don't go to Chorley. If you make a complaint it can take over a year to get a reply, even then you wonder if the people who reply are schooled in double talk. As we could not understand the reply.
