"Absolutely fantstic care and advice."

About: Berwick Infirmary

What I liked

The staff were absolutely fantstic, I was taken into the minor injuries unit because I had severe breathing difficulty whilst I was on holiday. I was assessed immediately by a very kind nurse and then straight away by a Doctor, I was advised that I might have a blood clot on my lungs. I was transfered by emercency ambulance to Wansbeck General. This was all in a matter of 10 minutes.

I am so grateful for all there help and expert care and advice, because I was advised that any further delay would have resulted in my death.

I will always be grateful for the speed at which my care was done.

The result was a bilateral pulmonary embolism, and I'm on the road to recover now but it will be a long recovery.

What could be improved

None

Thank you for your kind comments. They will be passed onto the Department Staff involved in your care.

We hope that your recovery continues.
