"My time at the Neurology dept"

About: Western General Hospital / Neurology

(as the patient),

I would just like to take a little bit of time out to thank the whole team that runs this superb unit.

I was rushed up from Dumfries with a bleed in the brain I was a very frightened man indeed but on arrival the nursing staff sat me down and explained the whole process to me this was a superb help and after the operation early the next morning the team helped me get through the next 8 days till I was discharged.

Words cant express how am feeling right now so from the bottom of my heart thank you so much

Dear chipwillow

Thank you so much for taking the time to share this lovely feedback following your stay in the Neurology ward. It must have been a very difficult time for you and it is lovely to read how well the staff cared for you and took the time to explain what would be happening.

I have passed this feedback on the team who l am sure will be delighted to read of this feedback and hope that you are well on the road to recovery.

Kind regards
