"Blackpool Victoria Hospital"

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

Anything else?

I had an operation at Blackpool Victoria hospital, if my wife had not insisted on me being checked out by the consultant, i feel i would have joined one of the high death statistics.

Clear signs of infection such as high temperatures,projectile vomiting, fainting, fecal material in body drains and my daily reports of daily deterioration were not acted on by the senior registrar and medical team. Until my wifes intervention prompted urgent consultant intervention and further surgery to stop an obvious serious infection.
