"Fantastic care from Ward 205 Edinburgh Royal Infirmary"

About: Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh at Little France / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

Since March 2015 I have suffered a great deal of problems with my stomach. During this period of time I have had numerous admissions to Ward 205 at the Royal Infirmary for weeks at a time.

Each and every admission has been as easy as it possibly can be. I have received some of the best medical care in my 21 years in this ward. The staff are always on hand if you need something and nothing is too much to ask. They are very cheerful and try to make your stay as easy and short as possible. They are very understanding and chatty which is really what you need when you're in hospital.

As someone who has been admitted on various occasions I have gotten to know many of the staff members well and when I'm admitted they are always the same. They are truly fantastic and I couldn't ask for a better quality of care.
