"Kindness and compassion"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / General Medicine

(as a relative),

My husband spent the last 4 weeks of his life in ward 7 and was treated with nothing but kindness and compassion as was myself sadly he passed away in December 2014

I have nothing but praise for all the nurses in this ward and his consultant Dr. smith. nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for all their compassion and for retaining my husbands dignity right to the very end.
