"You are all wonderful!"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Emergency department Wishaw General Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was admitted to the AE Department of WGH with severe abdominal pain, diagnosed as having acute cholecystitis and transferred to the surgical ward for surgery the following day. I should like to thank everyone who was involved in my care during that time - they could not have been more attentive. I am sorry that I cannot mention each individual but thanks to Dr Harden and Dr Tanya and AE staff, to Mr Kaseem, Miss MacDonald and Dr Ammar from the surgical team, to Dr Bell and her anaesthetics team and to the wonderful nurses and staff of W18 and W16 - especially Anne. Thanks also to Dr Hunter from Microbiology. You are all wonderful!

I hope that you are making good progress.

Once again many thanks for your positive feedback.
