I attended Gartnaval General today as a day patient to have a small procedure carried out on my hand.
Being a "wee fearty" I was rather nervous and anxious, however the staff were amazing and reassured me at every step, everyone I encountered was genuinely helpful and cheerful.
I would like to thank all of them, from the admissions lady, the ward staff (gold stars deserved), the cleaning staff, the porters (Alan and the chap who has recently had a knee replacement whose name now escapes me ) the surgeons and the theatre staff, in particular Ian who held my hand during the procedure when my nerves got the better of me and who listened to my nervous ramblings.
Too much criticism is aimed at the NHS and sometime we forget how lucky we are to have this precious service and the wonderful people who do such an amazing job, often under so much pressure.
Thank you again to all of you, you really do, do a fantastic job!
