"Excellent care and treatment for my son"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Emergency department

(as a relative),

My son experienced a head injury and was in shock from the amount of blood loss. I brought him to the A&E department at Wishaw General and cannot thank them enough for their care and attention to him. His wound was cleaned and the Dr Jessica explained what she was going to do and gave him a thorough examination. All staff in the department were very nice and put him at ease during his attendance.

I could see that the department was very busy but this did not distract them from the care and attention they gave. Thank you to all the staff who were on last night.
