What I liked
I owe my life to a Doctor in A & E who first heard my heart murmur, something which my much more 'experienced' G.P failed to do. Without the Doctor's diligence and that of the Doctor's more senior colleague I would have been dead within days from a ruined heart valve.
God bless that Doctor.
Many thanks also due to the infectious diseases ward staff who did so much to try and control my pain.
What could be improved
The Royal Infirmary is more akin to a M.A.S.H unit than anything else. Staff shouldn't have to be fire-fighting all through their shifts.
