One pa­tient, so much sup­port

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - COMMENT -

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.

Bob Milne. Mont­gomerie Cres­cent, Dundee.
