"Well done and thanks"

About: Queen Elizabeth University Hospital Glasgow / Bones, joint and fractures

(as the patient),

From start to finish my care has been exemplary. My GP referred me in summer to get MRI and nerve conduction tests. By October the tests were done and I was offered a consultation with a surgeon. I was offered surgery. I opted to wait and see. After a number of weeks I concluded I would take the surgery. From that point I had to wait only a handful of weeks before being admitted to the SGUH/QEUH. My care there was excellent. Everyone introduced themselves and was polite and caring. After surgery I was in ward 10A for just over a day and it was a really positive experience. I'm now at home recovering and I just felt I should say "well done and thanks" to everyone involved. World class service.

Lorna, you might want to pass it on to the BBC as, based on what I see daily on the news the hospital is a disaster. Those of us who have actually used it know better.
