"Felt confident and reassured"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Accident & emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

The Emergency Nurse Practitioner at Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert was calm, thorough and very effective when my son was injured during a rugby match in nearby Stirling last week.

I was most impressed by the thorough way in which he systematically and competently conducted neurological and then eye examination - and especially the way he anticipated the importance of getting a good cosmetic result in his treatment of an eye injury.

As parents we were actively involved in discussions about clinical follow-up and left with a son who had not only been patched up but, importantly, felt confident and reassured that he had had an expert assessment and could begin to get well again, knowing that there were no other injuries.
