"A&E and ICU saving my wife's life."

About: Crosshouse Hospital / Accident & Emergency Crosshouse Hospital / Intensive Care Unit

(as a relative),

My wife had previously had a pelvic floor repair done. She developed an infection about 2 weeks after release from hospital. Her GP admitted her to hospital via A & E. After being assessed we were told her chances of survival were very thin.

We prepared for the worse. However, due to the skills and determination of both A&E and ICU, she survived. All those working in those departments were amazing, not only in saving my wife's life but also in their care and attention they gave to me and my daughter. I would just like to say thank you all at Crosshouse hospital.
