"Great staff. Sorted me out."

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

Anything else?

I turned up on Bank Holiday Monday with a dislocated shoulder after being transferred from Burnley (where I waited a long time without much happening and no pain relief for over two hours).

The Blackburn A&E staff, nurses and the doctor, were all fantastic. Very friendly, had me in a bed in resus immediately, had me on gas and air very quickly, got a line in and gave me morphine. Not long later I saw a doctor and they got my arm wrenched back in its socket. I don't remember a thing about that as they had me sedated. I went home happy that it was all sorted if a little sick and tired.

Can't fault the staff. They were great.
