"Excellent service at Monklands Hospital"

About: Monklands District General Hospital / Emergency department

(as a relative),

My relative was admitted to the a and e department of Monklands hospital. She was assessed very quickly and the treatment she received by the nurses, student nurses and the consultant was of a very high standard. The student nurses in particular were very impressive. She was then asked to return to the Ambulatory emergency care unit the following morning. Once again from the nurses, radiographers to the tea lady and cleaner excellent. She is still under the care of this unit and I want to say in my opinion what an excellent unit for treating people like my mother and very thorough. I am a nurse myself and was very impressed.
