Posted by Mr James Smith (as ),
I arrived at Drumchapel Hospital one evening about 7 months ago to visit my cousin and noticed lots of patients, mums, dads and small children all in the waiting area.. People were waiting to see the GP's who operate there in the evenings and the reception area was very busy.. Passing into the hospital to visit my family member I was a long time guest/visitor of this hospital. Whilst in the hospital there was a high level of laughter/noise coming from the corridor and a number of staff passed pushing a steel box type trolley about six foot long with a blue cover. After passing the reception area which was still very busy this happy band headed down the long windowed slope. Everyone was shocked to watch this and some patients wheeled themselves away after seeing this saying that this should not happen. Someone went over and asked the staff was this what everyone thought it was and they said Yes, the trolley contained a dead person. There was no respect or dignity in the way this was being done.
