My uncle was admitted to Hairmyres Hospital at the beginning of July. He was admitted with an infection but had terminal cancer and his illness was progressing so he was entering the final journey of his life. Whilst we are all too quick to criticise, the care that was given by the nursing staff on the ward was nothing short of exceptional. Their care, compassion and sense of humour was appreciated by all and helped support the family through a sad and stressful time. All of the staff (including the students) claimed that they were only doing their job, however, they are a credit to the NHS and their professionalism has to be recognised by senior management and beyond.
