"Great nurses"

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

Anything else?

The nurses are absolutely excellant they looked affter myself and other patients they treated me and others like humans and not like just a number like at other hospitals even though they where rushed of their feet very kind and caring.But doctors are poor do not know what they are doing and do not read notes what previous doctors have decided.when discharge people, not good at explaining things I got more out of the nurses. I felt bad asking them as they had allot on their plate also hated working out what things where abbreviated etc.on discharge letter for me to take home, which if you where a nurse or doctor you would understand.When I asked to see doctor on MAU he would not come back to talk to me to explain.But again full marks for the nurses on mau and brindle ward.
