"Thank for the care of my father"

About: Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre Southern General Hospital / Neurology Wishaw General Hospital / Emergency department

(as a relative),

My dad was diagnosed with a brain tumour in December last year he was brought into A & E Wishaw and was treated with respect and dignity my mum and myself were given compassion and 'tea'. The nurses were extremely busy but still had time to spend with us, he was admitted to ECU and again given wonderful care. He was transferred to SGH and then attended the Beatson for treatment. Sadly my dad passed away this month, the care from the NHS both in hospital and at home has been amazing, and I would like to thank all the hardworking staff who do a super job every day.
