"A credit to the hospital"

About: University Hospital Hairmyres / Day Surgery University Hospital Hairmyres / Pre Operative Assessment

(as a service user),

I was treated today at the Hospital's day surgery unit. I would like to thank all the staff for their care. In particular nurse Lindsay. Her pleasant manner in how she dealt with me made all the difference I'm sure your staff don't often get praise for the work they do in this negitive world we live in. Also in my meetings with Mr Denley my surgeon who I found to be very approachable and unlike some who hold such a lofty position pleasant and easy to speak to.

If you could pass this on to them I'd be obliged.
A credit to the hospital.

Dear Geoman50,

Thanks very much for taking the time to provide the kind feedback above. I'll make sure that the Day Surgery Unit team and Mr Denley get the chance to see it as I know they will all be pleased to know that they left such a positive experience.

All the best,
