"Care delivered with dignity and compassion."

About: Royal Preston Hospital

What I liked

My son came into ward4 for a dressing check following an injury to his hand. It was decided by the doctors to give him a nerve block and wash the wound out. The nurse was exceptionally efficient and helpful. I saw her running more than once. Everything moved along well. We were taken to a ward, given a bed, everything was explained well. The anaesthetist came to see us, explained everything and because my son had eaten breakfast earlier, he could not give him the block until 6 hours from eating. As soon as that time had passed, the theatre staff came for my son, took him to theatre and did the procedure. I cannot thank and praise the department enough, especially one nurse on ward 4. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently. Thank you all so much for your excellent care.
