"Thanks for taking great care of my mother"

About: Aberdeen Royal Infirmary / Emergency Medicine

(as a relative),

She collapsed whilst we on holiday in Fettercairn Scotland. She was taken to Forest Hills Hospital Aberdeen A & E.

I can only say that the professionalism and all round care were exemplary, delivered by a very polite and cheerful group of people.

She was admitted to ward 103, and again the care was excellent.

All of the staff she experienced were helpful, polite and seem to find no task to difficult to do. I believe we experienced a well motivated group of medical practitioners who worked as a very close knit community with a very high degree of teamwork.

I cannot praise the staff highly enough and am sincerely grateful for making a very traumatic event to us easier to bear.

Very Many Thanks.
