"Husband's three admissions"

About: Monklands District General Hospital / Gastroenterology Monklands District General Hospital / General Psychiatry

(as a relative),

My previously well husband has had three admissions since May 2014, firstly to ERU in May, then 6 week admission under the care of Dr Cheema in ward 24 in October, then lastly 2week admission under care of Miss Sharma in February 2015. Would just like to say we have been exceptionally grateful for the excellent care my husband has received by all staff we had contact with in Monklands Hospital. Thank you so much.

Often the public only hear about negative experiences in the NHS via the media and I thought it was important to write about the excellent care my husband has received since May of last year from secondary, primary and community services.
