"My father's care at Golden Jubilee Hospital"

About: Golden Jubilee National Hospital / Cardiac Surgery

(as a relative),

The experience my dad had staying in the east ward on level 3 was excellent. The staff are really friendly and professional and treated my dad with lots of dignity and care. Also the staff in the ICU were excellent and his care was brilliant. Even though my dad was the patient everyone made me feel comfortable, and I was included in his care and explained everything clearly. The staff treated my dad with utmost respect and thanks to the staff on the ward his recovery was so quick. However, the physiotherapists were also very good, making sure he was on his feel and taking the right steps towards his recovery.

I would like to thank everyone who took part in caring for my dad, and that includes the staff in theatre, also Mr Sutherland who my dad and me think is a great doctor and surgeon.

Response from Christine McGuinness, Communications Manager, Golden Jubilee National Hospital

Dear melting132

It's always good to hear what our patients and their families have to say about their experiences here at the Golden Jubilee. Nobody likes going into hospital, so it is especially good to hear that you feel your dad had an excellent experience during his stay - we will be sure to pass on your kind comments to Mr Sutherland and all the staff in ICU, 3 East and the physiotherapists who looked after him.

Best wishes for your dad's ongoing recovery!

Kind regards
