After brain surgery (craniotomy fenestration) I required therapy for dysarthria and dysphagia and I was referred to Speech & Language Therapy at Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary.
The treatment and care I received from Linda (Speech Therapist) was outstanding.
In the early days of my speech therapy appointments I often struggled with following simple exercises that Linda showed me, but her understanding and insight of my post surgery abilities/limitations was outstanding and thus allowed her to show great patience and empathy to me.
She went above and beyond her role as speech therapist often offering a listening ear and assistance with other issues regarding my recovery from brain surgery, for which I will always be grateful for.
I always felt my well-being was paramount to Linda and she gave excellent person-centred care, which had a positive result in my therapy and recovery.
She is a credit to her profession and a wonderful asset to the NHS.
