I received weekly infusions in the Ambulatory Care Unit in Caithness Gneral Hospital, Wick over the past 3 months. At every step of the way I was treated as an individual person with respect and given the information I needed so that I could give my consent for any of the procedures needed e. g. taking bloods, siting infusion catheters, removal of Picc lines. I was given the opportunity to discuss my concerns and staff went out of their way to find out information and even ring me at home to update me on what was happening. They even arranged lunch for me one day when treatment took longer than normal.
As a qualified nurse who works in another Health Board Region and travels a long distance to do I job I love (I live near Wick); it was a pleasure to be looked after by caring and compassionate staff who clearly love their job as much as I do and who treat all their patients as individuals. I can honestly say that if I had been trained as a general nurse (sadly I'm not! ! ) I would rush to apply for a job with such an outstanding, caring team. It would be a privilege to work with the patients and staff as a team.
