PATIENTS who receive care from a hospital said they would recommend it to their family and friends.

Feedback from patients at BMI Gisburne Park Hospital in Gisburn has shown that 99 per cent of those who received care there would suggest it to their family and friends.

The figures for the independent hospital in Gisburn Park Estate were the findings of the independent survey operator Quality Health, which analysed responses of 1,526 patients who responded to a questionnaire between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017.

Consultant general surgeon Mr Lyndon Jones said: “Receiving feedback like this is really important because it provides me, as a consultant, with the reassurance that patients are receiving excellent care at this hospital.”

The figures have been well received by the 90 staff who work at the hospital and who provide care for NHS-funded patients, insured patients and those who choose to pay for themselves.
