"Swift treatment at Hairmyres Hospital"

About: Hairmyres Hospital / Emergency department

(as the patient),

At the weekend I experienced severe pain in my upper back and my partner took me to Hairmyres A&E.

I have nothing but praise for the swift attention I was given. Doctors and nurses were so nice and very thorough. I was admitted to Ward 3 for a few hours and the attention I was given was impressive even down to bringing me my normal medication when it was due. I felt the hospital was very clean and peaceful.

Thank you for taking such great care of me even though it was just a few hours.
