Following major surgery at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary for a triple A, I was subject to a suspected infection and complete loss of magnesium calcium and sodium in my system. This resulted in re-admission to ERI initially and then transfer to the new unit at B. G. H. nearer my home. Treatment there was done daily as an out patient, and involved I. V. antibiotics administered via a PICC line over a period of 4 weeks. All staff at Borders General were in my opinion outstanding giving a great level of care far and beyond the norm. Many had little experience of PICC lines and again done a fantastic job. This new unit is a major gain for people of the area and needs to be developed further with future expansion and development in this rural area.
