"Excellent patient care"

About: NHS Grampian

(as the patient),

Began having terrible breathing problems, went to Varis medical centre in Forres at 5pm where 2 nurses and a doctor ended up staying until after 7 pm until they were happy I was responding to the treatment they had given me, otherwise it was going to be a hospital admission.

At no point did any of them make me feel I was being an inconvenience, despite the fact the centre closes at 6pm, in fact it was exact opposite, they were all so caring and made it clear I was their main concern.

Excellent patient care, I was also given after care advice before leaving.

True Angels indeed. Thank you
