"Patient Care"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / General Medicine

(as the patient),

I have been getting Venesections at Wishaw General Hospital.

The care and attention that all the nurses in the Medical Day Care Unit provide is outstanding. The unit is always busy and the nurses are run off there feet but they always make sure that you feel at ease and get 100% care and attention.

I was terrified when I first went and the nurses made such a difference in making me feel safe and comfortable.

The service that they deliver is 2nd to none.
