"A private hospital could not have treated me better"

About: Ayr Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I had a small operation in the Day Surgery unit at the Ayr Hospital and I must say Miss Gibson, the doctors and staff were excellent. Their empathy and kindness were absolutely fabulous, a private hospital could not have treated me better. Nobody could have managed to provide better care than this team.

Dear Label850,

I am delighted your experience was such a good one and I hope you are completely recovered now. As a ‘very long in the tooth’ NHS employee, I have always believed that each person deserves to be treated the same way irrespective of where their care is provided privately or in the NHS and I am glad this has been your experience.

I will be very pleased to pass this to the team to share with them how you feel about the care they gave you. Thank you so much for sharing this with us via the PO website.

Best wishes,
