"Cannot praise Wishaw General enough"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Emergency department

(as the patient),

I was admitted as an emergency case in the wee hours one day in early May 2016. I was seriously ill but thanks to the skills of Dr Akhtar and his support team in the endoscopy unit I pulled through.

I was in Wishaw General for two weeks, in the high dependency unit and ward five. The care and attention that I received from doctors, nursing staff and domestics was nothing less than five star. I cannot praise them enough.
