About: Hairmyres Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

Hi, its the first time I've really been in hospital for anything so I was very anxious but from the reception lady to the nurses, anaesthetists, doctors and surgeon I was put to ease immediately before my wee op, afterwards in the recovery room everybody was fantastic and the nurses don't stop until they know that you are comfortable I was really impressed, and although I don't want to end up in there again if I do I would not be worried one bit, well done everybody in the day surgery unit

Dear Henrik,

Coming to Hospital for any reason can be quite daunting, I am so pleased our Day Surgery staff were able to put you at ease and that your experience was as comfortable as possible in the circumstances.

I'm pleased to share your kind feedback with the staff who will be delighted by your comments.

Kind Regards

Gwen Macintyre
