"My recent stay in Western Isles Hospital in Stornoway"

About: Western Isles Hospital / Accident & Emergency Western Isles Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was treated for a broken ankle after a fall on holiday in the Hebrides and had to have an operation in the hospital..the treatment I received from all the staff was fantastic. The kindness and compassion I received from A&E, ward staff and theatre staff was exemplary. Their professionalism too was amazing, I was very impressed. The after op treatment was first class too. All the staff are a credit to the NHS and I will remember their kindness for a long time as will my wife who was as impressed as myself at the treatment received.
