Case Studies

"I got rushed in last night to have a tooth out but I'd had a massive abscess that was in the way.I was very frightened although being 40 years old I'd never been in hospital before,but the doctor was very calming and put me at ease.

I really can't thank you all enough the surgical team was fantastic and a big thank you to the young lady who held my hand until they put me to sleep.
All the staff on ward 33 they never stop giving care to people and nothing is to much trouble.
And I've alway heard hospital food was not nice don't think they have stopped in Lancaster because the food was very nice.
Well from the bottom of my heart guys thank you xx"

"I have seen a number of staff at the hospital in the last couple of month , due to having mild skin cancer. All of them have been excellent not only in surgery , but the before and after care as well."
