"The staff were extremely attentive, informative and supportive"

About: Hairmyres Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

After investigations to find the root cause of my fainting episodes, I was advised to undergo a dual pacemaker implant procedure. In the lead up to this procedure I was treated so well by the staff in expected patients A & E Department, Ward 2 and the coronary Care Unit. The staff were extremely attentive, informative and supportive to not only me but to my two daughters and husband.
