"Heart felt thanks to you all"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / High dependency unit

(as the patient),

I stayed in the High Dependency Unit for a period of 6 days at Forth Valley Royal Hospital 4 weeks ago following major surgery.

The team of intensive care nurses were absolutely brilliant - both in terms of professionalism and compassion. It takes a special type of person to nurse in this area and every one of them fitted the bill. There were a few occasions when I needed support 'beyond the call of duty' and it was provided every time.

Special mentions to Bernie, Fiona (my guardian angel who appeared the first night of my surgery) and Emma who does not realise just how good she is at her job. Heartfelt thanks to all of you.
