"My stay in ward 6 monklands hospital"

About: Monklands District General Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I recently had a short stay in ward 6 monklands hospital. The staff were very caring and helpful.

I had to have an operation when I was in the hospital, the care which I received from the 2 ward nurses when I returned from theatre was exceptional. Both were caring and considerate.

I felt like nothing was a bother for Mary and Jacqueline, they reassured me at all points.

Dear H ham

Thank you for taking the time to post your experience of care in Ward 6 at Monklands Hospital. Staff understand how stressful it is to be in hospital undergoing surgery and try extremely hard to reassure and comfort patients.

I'm glad your experience was so positive and I hope you are recovering well from your surgery. I will pass on your kind comments to the ward staff.

Kind regards
