"Emergency admission with diverticulitis"

About: Cowal Community Hospital (formerly Dunoon General) / Accident & Emergency Inverclyde Royal Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

Sudden loss of blood, meant an emergency admission.. Excellent care on the ward, and very accurate diagnosis by the consultant Mr Hannay.

Discharge on third day

Came into have a colonoscopy, and the service was superb. Friendly and professional care all round, which confirmed the consultants diagnosis.

Dear GR39,

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your recent experience in hospital - although being admitted as an emergency must have been a frightening experience for you, so I'm glad that you received such a high standard of care, in both your inpatient stay and outpatient appointment.

I hope that you are keeping well now, and thanks again for getting in touch,

Best Wishes,
