"Thanks to all on ward 15 dermatology monklands hospital"

About: Monklands District General Hospital / Dermatology

(as a relative),

Dad has just spent 3 weeks in the dermatology ward. he had been unwell since xmas. he has never been in hospital despite being 71 years old.

Staff were professional and genuinely cared for him and our family. His anxieties soon passed and every member of staff introduced themselves. I work for the NHS and understand the challenges faced each day. I have never seen my dad so low. Not only did staff deal exceptionally with his physical needs, they provided continuous psychological support and education.

He is home and recovering with close follow up at clinic. Thank you all for the invaluable care you provided.
