"Staff and volunteers have been wonderful "

About: Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary / Cancer care

(as the patient),

My cancer surgery went very well. Nearly all the nurses and trainee nurses and auxiliaries did everything humanly possible.

I have also spent a great deal of time in the Macmillan/cancer unit. They (the paid and volunteer staff) have been wonderful.

Why are patients allowed to smoke at the entrance of the hospital?

My two real worries are:

1) Not enough is spent on staffing. The poor nurses were overworked and felt they could not do their job as they would have liked.

2) Preventative medicine. Many of our conditions could be avoided with effort. e.g. Obesity, Heart conditions, chest Disease
