"Great Hospital Staff"

About: Hairmyres Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was recently sent to A&E at Hairmyres Hospital, East Kilbride for an ECG. Being a bit of a germ-a-phobe and a nervous patient I was not looking forward to this. From the moment I stepped into the hospital every member of staff I encountered were polite, friendly and helpful. I spent 3 hours undertaking various tests and during that time was seen to by 5 nurses/doctors. Every one of them are a credit to the hospital, they were easy to talk to, I could ask questions without being made to feel silly and they even joked with me which completely put me at ease. I think the NHS gets a lot of bad press and I was truly impressed by my experience. Some of the doctors I was seen by were trainees and if that's the service they offer now, they will be great doctors!
