"The standard of care shown by all was highly satisfactory"

John Cornah, Consultant Maxillofacial Surgeon (retired)

"I was an emergency admission to the Spire Fylde Coast Hospital on 12 June 2014.  I had sustained a fracture of the left ankle joint whilst out walking in the Lune Valley. I was transferred firstly to the Royal Lancaster Infirmary and thereafter to Blackpool.  

I was received with courtesy and efficiency and had an operative procedure on the following day. The nursing and theatre staff were exemplary and I have happy memories of their collective expertise even in the stressful circumstances of my injury. I have particular praise for Mr Paul Dunkow, consultant orthopaedic surgeon, and his anaesthetic colleague.

The standard of care shown by all was highly satisfactory and I would have no hesitation in using the service so well provided on a future occasion if that were to be necessary."
