"I think this is an excellent service"

About: Hairmyres Hospital / Emergency department

(as a parent/guardian),

You frequently hear stories of people having to wait hours to be seen at A&E. Today I had to take my eight year old daughter to A&E after falling and twisting her arm. We arrived, were seen by a nurse, x Ray's taken, reviewed and where on out way home about an hour later. I think this is an excellent service.
