"The staff were professional caring and compassionate"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Emergency department

(as a relative),

My father was admitted on Saturday. He was seen by Dr J Pope who was excellent. My father is elderly and it takes a lot for him to admit he was unwell. He was looked after by excellent nurses. Fiona and Clare to name two. Although others were also there and provided care. The department was extremely busy with ambulances constantly arriving. At all times the staff were professional caring and compassionate. He was transferred to ECU where this theme continued. He was looked after by Bel and Tom. Although again others were involved on the night shift and the Sunday but don't know their names.
