"Excellent gynae care"

About: Raigmore Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I'd just like to record my thanks and appreciation for the excellent care I received at Raigmore Hospital recently when I had a hysterectomy carried out.

In particular, I appreciated the time taken by surgeon, Dr Davies and anaesthetist, Dr Whyte at the pre-op appointment to talk through the procedure and answer my questions. This support helped so much to reduce my anxiety.

Ward 8 staff also provided wonderful care after surgery, so my thanks to them too!

Dear Gynaepatient

Your thanks and appreciation is gratefully received. I will share with it members of the team.

Having an operation is always an anxious time and that why its so important we look after people when they come into our care. I hope you will make a good recovery.
