"Wonderful team for my Crohn's disease care"

About: Royal Alexandra Hospital / General Medicine

(as the patient),

I had a relapse with my Crohns disease & got referred to Seth & Allan, IBD nurses in the RAH in Paisley,

Seth was my first port of call, he spent a lot of time talking to me & giving me information. I had Crohn's for ten years & I learnt more from seth in one appointment than I did the last ten years of having Crohns. He was a breath of fresh air to me & my husband answered all my questions about treatment his knowledge & care was & is outstanding.

To cut the story short I was admitted to hospital in march for a right hemicolectomy with Ms Moag as my surgeon who done a fantastic job her knowledge & compassion was outstanding & I can't thank her enough for making me well again.

I am currently on meds & in the safe hands of Seth & Allan I cannot praise them enough for their support knowledge & kind understanding makes a hospital visit all the more pleasant.

The NHS should be proud of such a wonderful IBD team they have in the RAH paisley. Living with Crohn's is made easier being in their care. Thank you.

Hello Irvine

Thank you very much for taking the time to share this feedback with us here at the RAH. It is so reassuring to know that you feel your care was great and that you are able to feel supported with things as you move on after surgery. Our teams work hard to do the best for patients and I will share your feedback with all the people you mention to let them know they've done a good job. They will be very reassured to hear this.

I hope things progress well for you in the future too but please don't hesitate if you have more to share or anything that you think would help us learn as a team

Take Care
