Posted by Granny (as ),
I went to see my GP on Monday 18th January 2016 and she decided I needed to be checked out at hospital.
On arriving at The Victoria hospital Kirkcaldy I was taken into a waiting room with some comfortable chairs and it was explained there would be a wait. I had my blood pressure etc taken. I then had a long wait but I could see some of the patients who were coming in on stretchers were very ill so I did not mind waiting ( can't say the same for my husband! )
Eventually I had some blood taken and was taken into a room to be seen by a young Dr who introduced herself as Claire, she examined me and explained that I would need a further blood test and a chest X-ray.
Meantime I had been offered something to eat and numerous cups of tea.
Eventually I was told about 7 hours after arriving that I could go home.
I would like to commend all the staff each of whom treated me with courtesy and respect even although the unit was like a war zone with patients coming in from all directions. I am 67 and remember the days when Consultants and some nurses barely looked at you never mind introducing themselves by their first names, shaking your hand and explaining everything very clearly. Changed days indeed!
Staff of Admissions one you are all stars-thank you.
