"Skin Cancer Care"

About: Glasgow Royal Infirmary / Dermatology University Hospital Hairmyres / Dermatology

(as a relative),

My dad has attended Mr Taggart and the dermatology team over the last year and the service has been absolutely fantastic. He was referred by his gp and was seen within 24hours by the dermatology team in hairmyres. He then attended Glasgow Royal Infirmary to have his cancer removed and Mr Taggart has done a phenomenal job. They did however discharge him covered in blood which wasn't great. I can't thank everyone involved enough. We are very lucky to have such an excellent service.

Dear Alisonmac78

Thanks for getting in touch.

I am glad to read about the care and treatment your Dad received, and that Mr Taggart did a phenomenal job.

However, I am sorry that your Dad was discharged home covered in blood and would be grateful if you could pass our apologies to your Dad.

I hope you Dad is recovering well.

Kind Regards
