"A big thank you ...."

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Care of the Elderly

(as the patient),

After a 10 week stay at Wishaw General Hospital I would like to say a big Thank You to the team of Physiotherapy/Occupational Therapy/Ward 11 (Stroke). Their dedication to their patients is constant. I can't thank them enough for all the help I received during recovery. Well Done!

I'm now at home and hope to continue to improve my strength and mobility.

Whilst I'm happy to be home I do miss your company!
