"Unwell on Holiday"

About: Arran Medical Group

(as the patient),

Rang the surgery, had terrible phone reception, but the caring receptionist was very understanding. the doctor rang back 30min later, reassured me and organised for a sample to be collected. I was over the moon with the level of caring and service, you wouldnt get that south of the boarder!

Dear PatientBill,

Thank you for sharing your story with us, I am sure the practice will be delighted with your comments. I am also glad you were happy with the care you received on Arran. It is such a great place to be, Scotland in miniature as they say. I hope you had (or are having) a wonderful holiday and you are not being eaten alive by the midges.

Take care,
