"Staff on ward 40 made me smile every day"

About: Aberdeen Royal Infirmary / Neurology (Brain, Spinal and Nerves)

(as the patient),

I went into Ward 40 this march for neurological tests, and I have to say the staff and doctors where fantastic, I had tests done including a lumber puncture (which I would rather have than a blood test hurts less )

The cause of my problems wasn't solved but they sent all to London in the hope to get an answer.

The doctors the nurses and all that work in ward 40 made it that even though i was unwell I smiled every day.

I thank them all
