"Stay in ward 18"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was in ward 18 about a year ago. I just discovered this website and I wanted to say my experience on the ward was great. I had 2 very traumatic experiences which resulted in emergency surgery twice and the staff were great. I especially wanted to say a special thanks to the csw Rita. She was amazing and helped me so much emotionally. Rita is an absolute credit to the team! !
