"Dr referring me to A&E at Hairmyres Hospital"

About: Hairmyres Hospital / Emergency department

(as the patient),

I attended Hairmyres Hospital after being referred to by my GP. As soon as I arrived in A&E I was taken straight away let to a bed and got an ECG. Then got blood pressure, temperature taken etc. Dr seen me then and was told to go for a chest xray. This was then followed by bloods and then ct scan. I would just like to say a MASSIVE thank to all Dr's nurses and especially the nurse who brought my mum tea and a sandwich as we had been there since early morning. I couldn't fault any member of staff. So pleasant and caring. Thank you to everyone and please pass this on so that they can get recognised for this.
