My husband was taken by ambulance to Forth Valley A&E, suffering from pneumonia. He was admitted to Acute Assessment and thereafter to Ward B 12.
Throughout his stay his care by all of the staff was exemplary, carried out with kindness, consideration and good humour. I am sure this contributed to his speedy recovery. Furthermore, all the staff made us, his family feel welcome and when approached were helpful and informative as to his progress.
I cannot thank you enough for the dedicated care and attention you afforded him while a patient in Forth Valley.
I find myself becoming angry and frustrated at the criticism often levelled at the NHS in the media, which is very rarely counterbalanced-by the many success stories and favourable outcomes for patients.
Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to all the staff in A&E, Acute Assessment, Ward B12 and the Day Medicine Unit.
