"Pleased with Renal Outpatient Clinic, Ayr Hospital"

About: Ayr Hospital

(as the patient),

Seen on time by Dr Spalding. She was aware of the results of a recent blood tests and my previous history. This was very reassuring.

Some explanations and observations were made and I was asked if I had questions or concerns. I was shown a computer graph of current and historical blood test results and explanations given.

This was a very pleasent experience and gave me every confidence that everyone was on the ball with my current and future needs. I cannot see how this service can be improved. I cannot praise this Doctor and the support staff enough.

I will be delighted to pass this to the team and Dr Spalding; it makes a big difference to staff to get good feedback when they are doing a good job.

Thank you again for letting us know,
