"mums bone marrow test & biopsy"

About: New Victoria Hospital / Haematology

(as a relative),

My mum was due to go for a bone marrow test and biopsy a couple of weeks ago. She was so worried and uptight about it she ended up being really sick and her appointment had to be cancelled.

The New Victoria hospital staff in Glasgow were very understanding and rescheduled her appointment, Mum made her appointment although she was really nervous again and getting herself into a state. The staff were absolutely fantastic, managed to calm mum down and carried out the procedure.

Mum just wanted to say a special thank you to the receptionists at clinic P in the New Victoria Hospital Glasgow but especially to the staff who carried out the procedure with such professionalism and care...these were: Doctor Roisin Hamilton from the Haematology lab at the southern general hospital, Lynne Summers (specialist nurse at the royal alexandria hospital paisley-haematology lab) and Pat Muir at the victoria infirmary glasgow.

Thank you for being so kind, caring and professional. You are a credit to the NHS x
