"Friendly and professional staff at cardiology unit Hairmyres"

About: Hairmyres Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

Referred to Cardiology department by GP for episode of palpitations.

Was taken by Karen, who was extremely professional and had a lovely manner.

Karen made me feel at ease and explained everything to me.

There was another young girl member of staff called, Gemma who was also extremely friendly and professional.

All the staff I could see seemed extremely friendly in a department, where I am sure a lot of patients feel anxious, and made to feel a bit more at ease. Well done Cardiology Department.

Dear Bar

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide us with this positive feedback, I am delighted that you found all the cardiology staff friendly and professional. I will ensure this is communicated to the team especially Karen and Gemma.

This must have been a very anxious time for you and I am glad your experience of our cardiology department was the high standard that we aim to achieve with all our patients.

Kind Regards

Anne Leitch
