Director is patient at Royal Blackburn Hospital

This Is Lancashire: Director is patient at Royal Blackburn Hospital Director is patient at Royal Blackburn Hospital

A CUP of tea can make all the difference for patients when they visit the Royal Blackburn and Burnley General hospitals, said Shazhad Sarwar.

The non-executive director of East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust said he was recently a patient at the trust when he needed a colonoscopy, to examine the interior lining of his large intestine.

He said he was struck by the importance of staff being friendly and offering patients a brew, adding: “A cup of tea might not mean a lot but it actually does. They didn’t know I was a non-executive director, I was just another patient.”

Don't know where this space cadet is looking, (think he must have been heavily sedated) or what he is thinking. But he needs to rethink his deluded view and get back into the real world.
