"Recent bout of ill health and surgery"

About: Western Isles Hospital

(as the patient),

I took ill earlier this year and was diagnosed very quickly and advised of treatment plan and surgical procedure that was required to restore me to full health as quickly as possible.

I live in the Western Isles and would like to say that from the very start I was treated with incredible respect, kindness and above all total dedication and professionalism.

The whole procedure was supported at all times and I was given excellent advice and care.

I also work within the NHS and my return to work has been like my care package, first class, with excellent support from my Manager, Occupational Health and fellow colleagues.

All in I would rate my experience as 9/10.
