"Ward 17 is a credit to the NHS"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was admitted to the ward from day surgery following an abdominal procedure. The staff in the ward were all kind and caring. I was treated with total dignity and respect the whole time I was there. Two nurses Joanne and Sylvia were exceptional made me feel at ease about being in hospital treated me with kindness and compassion. The ward is a credit to the NHS.
