“Nothing but the highest praise”

I was admitted to Forth Valley Royal Hospital at midnight on Friday 9th May suffering from severe chest pains which I thought was the onset of a stroke.  It transpired that I was suffering from a bout of pneumonia.  I was given a bed and an anti-biotic regime which enabled me to be discharged on the following Wednesday.
I have nothing but the highest praise not only for all the medical and nursing staff who dealt with me but also the unsung people such as cleaners, porters and tea ladies.  It seemed that no-one could do enough for me and the other patients.
I was greatly surprised by the quality of the food produced by the hospital kitchens.  It is a long way away from the hospital food of yore – tasty, in sufficient quantities to satisfy any hunger pangs yet I lost weight whilst in hospital!  So something was right about that.
Forth Valley Royal Hospital can hold its head up and we can judge ourselves lucky to be served by it.
