"The care throughout my stay at Monklands Hospital Dermatology unit was excellent"

About: Monklands District General Hospital / Dermatology

(as the patient),

I have had eczema for a while and my dermatologist decided that I should be admitted to hospital to try and clear it up. As soon as I got to the ward at Monklands hospital I was put at ease and the care throughout my stay was excellent. The nurses and doctors were very helpful and caring and they took into account my mental health problems too, in my opinion they were more considerate than the staff I have encountered in the psychiatric wards I have been admitted to. By the end of my stay my eczema was much better.
