"Diagnosis, pre and post surgery care"

About: New Victoria Hospital (Glasgow) Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Glasgow / General surgery

(as the patient),

I went to my GP Dr Irelend, Newton Mearns with an issue of a growth on my nose.

Referred to New Victoria hospital and met Consultant.

Referred to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Glasgow.

Met neuro surgical consultant, Mr McMahon.

Surgery within two weeks.

Surgeon and nursing staff excellent.

Post op' visit superb with some sutures removed by wonderful nurse(who is from Clarkston).

2nd post op' visit to see Consultant Mr McMahon 2 days later.

All remaining sutures removed.

Thank you to all NHS staff from GP throughout to end of visits. Everyone made me feel relaxed, comfortable and explained in detail every procedure before, during and after.

Next visit is 6 Months time with Consultant to look at how well the surgery area of my face has healed.

Again, well done to all involved. 👍
