"admitted to hospital"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was having very bad pain for about 3 months on my right side which was causing a lots of pain. I stayed at wishaw general hospital ward 16. And i had the very best care ever. All the nursing staff were absolutely brilliant. Including all domestic staff that brought my meals they all do a fantastic job. And to all doctors for all my scans. And scope. Also xray. And the doctors found out i had a small hiatus hernia also my gullet was inflamed. So i got my medication changed. And i was able to go home so once again much appreciated for all the hard work. P's the 2 nurses leslie. And elaine. Were a brilliant laugh. Thanks once again

I will share your comments with all of the staff as getting positive feedback always boosts morale within the team.Leslie and Elaine will be delighted to know that they made a difference and helped to make what would have been an anxious time more bearable. I hope that you are continuing to recover well at home,
