"Fantastic department"

About: University Hospital Monklands

(as a carer),

I was with my mum at the endoscopy unit at monkland today. The care was outstanding the staff were professional, slick and on the ball. From start to finish no hanging around. My wee mum was diagnosed with dementia and I called the unit the week before to ask if I could stay with her and the reply was of course you can. It made things a lot easier and less stressful for my mum. Well done monklands X

Dear Pamsie26

Thanks you for your post today on patient opinion. I will be delighted to pass on your very positive comments to the staff within the department. The staff within Endoscopy strive to do their best for patients in particular your mum who required you to be with her. We want you to have a person centred experience to meet you and your mum's needs.

Hope your mum is recovering well at home following her procedure today.

Kind Regards
