"Excellent service"

About: Glasgow Royal Infirmary / Plastic Surgery & Burns

(as the patient),

I had a rodent ulcer removed from my face.

The plastic surgeon and the nurses at canniesburn plastic surgery unit at Glasgow royal infirmary were amazing. My blood pressure was high and they just kept talking to me and tried to make me feel less anxious.

After the surgery they gave me a letter and told me to take it to my doctor today. I have now been given tablets for my blood pressure so they have sorted that out also. I would just like to say a big thank you to them as their bedside manner was excellent

Hi Ethan,

I just wanted to give you a quick update to let you know that your comments have been passed on to the Lead Nurse for the Canniesburn Unit and have gone to the team on the Unit who really appreciate the time you have taken to pass on your thanks.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde also has an internal website which is used by our staff to make suggestions for improvements or to share examples of good practice. The Regional Services Directorate (which the Canniesburn Unit is a part of) uses this to share all of the patient feedback they receive with all of their staff, and your feedback has been used here to highlight how important staff attitude is in making sure that patients have a positive experience at a time which is usually very anxious for them.

Thank you again for getting in touch,

Best Wishes,

Lorna
