"I was very impressed by the professionalism with which I was subjected"

About: Ayrshire Central Hospital / General Psychiatry

(as the patient),

Today, I attended an appointment at the Mental Health services in Kilmarnock, I was attended by Maureen, a very pleasant and courteous person.

The interview was about my mental health and as I also attend the Memory Clinic in Glasgow, the interview was very much on the same lines about my concerns as I have mild Alzheimers..

The interview was also very informal, checking out my ability to memorise things which had gave me cause for concern, memory tests etc etc, I was very impressed by the professionalism with which I was subjected, nothing happened that gave me any angst.

All in all I have never be seriously ill in my 79 years and have always been very well served by the NHS any time I have had to go for Jabs etc.
