‘The Follow Up Care I Have Had From Them Has Been Second To None’

On the 30th of May 2015 I attended the a and e after having attended Wishaw General the day before to get a Bartholins abcess lanced. I had become septic and the abcess was still there. I was very unwell and the care I recieved in a and e, the gynaecology ward and theatre was fantastic. Every member of staff that dealt with me during my 6 day stay was amazing. I would especially like to praise the staff from the gynae ward. I was extremely impressed with care I recieved. Nurse Lynne Russell was extremely professional, personable and had a wonderful bed side manner. I was very frightened and not the easiest of patients to nurse and her manner and care put me at ease and made the whole unpleasant experience of my illness bearable. She truly was an absolute star nurse. I cannot commend her highly enough. My family were also very impressed by Lynne, she was wonderful with my children when they visited. She made the experience pleasant and fun for them. I cannot put into words how glad I am to have been nursed by Lynne, I think without her care I would not have had such a positive experience. All the staff were great, Audrey, Sharon and Iona to name a few. The girls that served the meals and the domestic staff were also really friendly, helpful and a nice distraction. I have been a patient in a few hospitals over the years and I have never had such a positive experience despite my ill health, the Drs and consultants from the gynae ward all had a fantastic rapport with their patients and the follow up care I have had from them has been second to none. Great hospital, very clean and most importantly caring staff. Thank you.
