"Great patient care at Gartnaval Hospital in Glasgow"

About: Gartnavel General Hospital / Medical Oncology

(as the patient),

I was very grateful for the kindness, supportive care and the intelligent way in which I was treated in the breast care dept. All staff were amazing. I had been worried about breast lumps but within two hours I had been checked, given a mammogram, had an ultra sound and then had a cyst aspirated. I was kept informed of my care at all stages and felt like I was being given the best care possible. Brilliant service and staff.

Dear FionaOutdoors

Thank you for taking the time to post on Patient Opinion. I am pleased to read that the way in which our staff cared for you had a positive impact on how you felt, as I am sure this would have been a stressful time for you.

You also mention that you were kept well informed during your care. This is important aspect of the care that we provide to our patients.

I will ensure that your feedback is shared with the staff in the Breast Care Department in Gartnavel Hospital. They will be delighted to receive your feedback.

Best wishes
