My 85 year old father who suffers from dementia and has been in Raigmore twice in the last few months, was admitted with an unknown infection which responded well to antibiotics. Unfortunately the night before discharge he had an internal bleed and required six pints of blood.
Dr Wilson is a truly unique consultant. He phoned me at home to discuss the set back and future care. All staff were superb and gave dad really individual high quality medical and nursing care.
During his acute phase the medical staff kept me fully informed of all his care and the reasons why they were doing things. The nursing staff were always respectful to dad and myself.
He spent a total of ten weeks in hospital. I can not fault any aspect of his care and have nothing but praise for Dr Wilson and his team. If anyone in Raigmore deserves a gold medal it is Dr Wilson on ward 5.
