"Best of attention"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

My day surgery took place in January in the day surgery ward at Wishaw General Hospital. When I arrived I was warmly greeted by the male receptionist. I was then taken to the ward where I was given great attention by all the staff, later I was taken to the theatre, again I was given the best of attention. Back in the ward I was treated with the utmost courtesy.

I feel there is a lot of negative comments made about Wishaw General but I did not find this to be the case. Keep up the good work. Thank You.
