Receiving unit badly in need of pillows. On the 27th August staff provided excellent care for my 96 year old mother. Later transferred to ward 33 and again very well cared for by Doctor Howie & staff.
My father was admitted to the Acute Receiving Unit on Monday. Everyone was warm and friendly including Andrew and Holly the ambulance staff who brought him. The doctor who saw him was really excellent. My father was confused and at times irritable and the doctor apologised for the delays (very busy unit), listened carefully and described clearly what was happening. The porters eho took him to MRI were friendly. Ward staff caring and helpful. Given the difficult circumstances couldn't ask for better. Thank you.
If the Western General Hospital was a lager it would be the best lager in the world....probably!! The staff from the porters to the surgeon were outstanding.
I visited Western Hospital for the first time when a dear friend was admitted after being taken ill at the care home he was registered. He suffers from an advanced sign of dementia and it is difficult to communicate with him. He is very confused and troubled. I am so impressed with this hospital and it's high level of care I felt bound to write this review. My friend was treated with the upmost care, dignity and concern from the moment he arrived. The staff are second to none, really caring and genuine. The standard of cleanliness, good open building makes this a very attractive building to be in. I have had a lot of experiences of hospitals and it's staff and care, Western General hospital rates very high in my opinion. I don't understand any of the negative publicity. Well done Western General keep the flag flying for the high standards as examples to many of the other hospitals within a fifty mile radius
