"I did not travel from Halifax to Burnley for..."

About: Burnley General Hospital

What I liked

I went to ward 15 on 12/03/12 for a full knee replacement.

From start to finish the care was nothing less than exellent.I particularly liked the way each part of care is split into specialist teams who all integrated very well.

Having heard lots of bad stories about hospital food it was a nice shock to find that if was superb with portions just right and a good/varied menu.

The only slightly down side was the whole day's wait for medication to be supplied upon discharge.

A huge thanks to the consultant, Ward 15 staff, the pain team, the Physio team, the Theatre team and anyone I have missed.

What could be improved

waiting time for medication upon release.

Anything else?

Would recommend this hospital to anyone/everyone.
