One patient, so much support
Sir, – My journey through the NHS started on September 30 when my wife called NHS24. An ambulance arrived within 10 minutes, the paramedics assessed my condition and I was taken to A&E at Ninewells Hospital.
Following further assessment I was transferred to ward 7 where more tests and scans revealed I needed an operation. I was in Surgical HDU after surgery then ward 10.
I was discharged on October 16 and my journey back to full health will continue through the chemotherapy unit.
To the paramedics, surgical team, nursing team, physiotherapists, cleaners, dieticians, kitchen staff, lab technicians, laundry service and porters and everyone else involved in my care, I am so grateful to you all for your skill, professionalism, dedication, care, compassion and laughter.
