"My recent spell in Skene ward Royal Cornhill Hospital."

About: Royal Cornhill Hospital / Old age psychiatry

(as the patient),

I am taking this opportunity to thank the Doctors, nursing staff, catering staff and the friends I made while under investigation at the Royal Cornhill Hospital male Skene ward.

The friendliness of all these people made my all too brief stay something not to be missed and definitely not to be approached with trepidation by anyone. The food was absolutely five star and could not be faulted.

I would particularly like to thank the mischievous person who I shared the ward with and whom I would like to call a lifelong friend and hope will stay in contact with me when he gets home.

Kind regards and best wishes.
