My dad is 85. He has never ever been in hospital as a patient. He phoned me to say he'd been unable to pass urine since the evening before and was in a lot of pain. I drove him to our nearest accident and emergency department in Wishaw General and the staff were fantastic. As soon as he was alerted to my dad's distress Staff Nurse Colin assessed him and did a bladder scan and catheterised him. My dad was in such relief. The doctor, Dr Pollock examined my dad thoroughly and bloods and tests were done to make sure he was okay. The nurses, Mags and Angela were so kind too. Everyone was great. Sorry if I've forgotten anyone. My dad was treated with respect and great skill. Thanks Wishaw A/E
