"I recently relied on other health professionals"

About: General practices in Lanarkshire University Hospital Wishaw / Cardiology

(as a staff member),

I am one of the cardiology nurses at University hospital Wishaw I recently relied on other health professionals and their services to help with a patient who was to go for Coronary angiogram. Both of the nurses which I spoke to at District nurses Viewpark health centre and Anti-coagulation services Bellshill clinic were very supportive their assistance was effortless  showing true professionalism within their practice.

Our patient has now had his procedure and is very grateful for all our help.

I feel as a nurse we should acknowledge our peers and I feel I must thank these nurses publicly I cant remember their names but they will know who they are. so Thank you from my service to yours.

It is always nice to recognise the support from other teams and show collaborative working for the benefit of our patients.

Kind regards
