"admitted with severe stomach pain and vomitting"

About: Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was admitted to ward 6 dumfries and galloway royal infirmary with a sub acute bowel obstruction. All the staff were professional and compassionate, couldnt have faulted them. Well done!

What could be improved is the communication about the condition.
