"My stay in ward 16 at Wishaw General"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was admitted to Wishaw General in April which was no april fool, as I realised I was needing more treatment than I could give myself at home, especially as I live by myself.

After being seen by Jonathon the Triage nurse I was admitted to Ward 18 where I was looked after with the utmost respect by the staff.

Two days later I was moved to Ward 16 where the real treatment began. the dedication & care I have received from Julie & her staff has been second to none, from the Serco staff right up to the consultant Mr Pareek.

I would have no hesitation in giving a reference or further details to anyone about Ward 16 and what they have done for me, they have turned my life around & I can't praise them highly enough. Thank you so much.
