"my first stay in hospital."

About: Hairmyres Hospital

(as the patient),

I have just spent over 2 weeks in Hairmyres Hospital, East Kilbride, including a week in the Intesive Care Unit. Every member of the hospital staff i came in contact with treated me with respect, kindness and care. I cannot find words to express my gratitude to the wonderful staff of I.C.U. who undoubtedly saved my life. Their dedication and nursing skills are truly remarkable, they helped me come to terms with a frightening time in my life...Thank you.
