"An emergency admittance and 5 day stay "

About: Victoria Hospital / Accident & Emergency Victoria Hospital / Gastroenterology

(as the patient),

I was taken by ambulance to A&E, Viewforth Hospital, Kirkcaldy with severe abdominal pains in November. I was subsequently admitted to Admissions ward 2 and then moved to ward 53.

The care I received throughout was nothing short of exceptional - all the staff were competent, reassuring and cheerily positive. I found this particularly in Admissions 2, where the care I received, under extremely busy conditions, was wonderful. It just kept me going through a difficult and anxious time.
