"Fantastic nurses who are never too busy..."

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

What I liked

The nursing staff were very helpful. On arriving it only took them a maximum of 5 minutes to realise what my problem was and start me on some treatment before seeing the doctor. They checked on me throughtout my short stay in A&E and kept me informed with what was going on. A significant improvement on other A&E's I have attended

What could be improved

The way the doctor spoke to me was as if it was all too much trouble. he could have spent slightly longer explaining to me what was happening as I struggle to understand some times.

Anything else?

The nursing staff I dealt with were a credit to the NHS
