About: North Tyneside General Hospital

Anything else?

Went to A&E after feeling unwell all day Saturday, ending in lots of pain. Department was quite busy but was seen to straight away as I really was in quite a lot of discomfort. Given pain relief which helped slightly nurses and doctor extremly helpful. Sent for a seiries of X-Rays to confirm the problem. All extremley efficent and fast. Luckily managed to pass the stone while at the hospital which was kept and sent for tests. Would like to thank all staff especially the doctor who treated me (sorry forgot the names) they should be extremley proud of the jobs they do.
