"My stay in the Cardiology Ward"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I've very recently had a planned admission to the Cardiology Ward in FVRH, arranged by my wonderful Consultant, Dr Glen, who I've been seeing on an Outpatient basis for quite some time now and from whom I've been receiving incredible care ever since. All I can say is that I can extend those compliments to every single Staff member in the Cardiology Ward, they all managed to create a very homely atmosphere, treating every single patient with the biggest respect and going way above the Standard of Care they have to deliver, caring for the patient as a whole, mending hearts not only from a physical point of view!

Because my condition is often lowering my quality of life quite a bit, it's been a roller coaster of emotions for me along my patient journey, but every Staff member I have come across so far (and that has been quite a lot! ) has been so incredibly caring and kind to me, I wouldn't want to start mentioning names as I would feel heartbroken about forgetting to mention somebody, so I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to everybody working in the Cardiology Services, inpatient as well as outpatient in FVRH, including Doctors, Nurses, Catering/Housekeepers, Volunteers as well as Administration Staff, I always feel safe in your hands!
