"The appointment was excellent – from the beginning to the end"

About: Monklands District General Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

This was my first appointment for the cardiology testing, I was well supported by my daughter-in-law and grand-daughter!

The appointment was excellent – from the beginning to the end – the receptionists letting us know where we need to be, the signposting to the different departments we attended to the medical staff who saw me. They were all very caring.

I appreciate coming to hospital for investigations can be a very stressful time, so it is important that staff communicate well and put you at ease.

I am pleased your experience was so positive and I will pass on your comments to the team.
