My husband collapsed on one afternoon last month with ventricular tachycardia and unstable atrial fibrillation. He was admitted by emergency ambulance to Hairmyres hospital, it was an extremely anxious time for us both.
The 999 operator who answered my call helped me stay calm, the paramedics particularly Grant who arrived first by car expertly reassured us while gaining as much information as possible.
In accident & emergency Dr Gallagher other doctors and the nursing team stabilised my husband and constantly updated us with the information we needed to understand what was happening.
The doctors and nurses in coronary care, cardiac catheterisation and ward 9 are dedicated and knowledgeable and cannot be faulted.
I would also like to say a big thank you to the domestic and catering team who do a great job. They work so hard.
A big thank you to the team at Hairmyres. We should be thankful of the NHS and hard working teams like Hairmyres.
