"My care"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Elderly medicine

(as the patient),

I saw Dr Lynsey Fielden in June, she arranged immediate tests and found I'd had a stroke, she then referred me to Mr. Yapanis, who performed carotid arterial surgery in the same month. Thereafter I received six weeks exercise classes in the rehabilitation centre (an excellent facility!)

I have nothing but praise for the attention I have received and wish to say thank you!
