"Good physiotherapy at Monklands Hospital"

About: Monklands District General Hospital / Trauma & orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I received excellent treatment and great encouragement from the two members of staff at Monklands General Hospital in Airdrie. Thanks to their endeavours and professionalism I have made an almost complete recovery and am on the way back to complete mobility and will be playing guitar again.

A big success story for me and the staff in Airdrie. I just wanted to say thanks pay my compliments to Frazer McKintosh and Cathleen McRae for their excellent work.
