"Excellant Care and Compassion"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / General Surgery

(as a parent/guardian),

My daughter had to use our local hospital services at the start of the week, being a health care professional myself, it is always difficult to change from your professional role, to being a mum.

The Staff in the day surgery unit and ward 18 were excellant, they communicated effectively, worked as a team and displayed fantanstic levels of care and compassion.

I felt assured that my daugher was in safe hands, in particular I would like to thank Mr BenYounes and Dr Reid (radiology) for their care and attention.
