"Excellent care."

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

Anything else?

I was on holiday in a caravan in Whitley Bay when my husband became ill. We were taken to accident and emergency and received an excellent level of care. Everyone from the student nurse to the senior doctor treated us with kindness and respect acknowledging that it's not nice to be ill away from home. My husband was seen promptly and his condition investigated thoroughly and explained comprehensively to us. Thank you for your care!

Response from North Tyneside General Hospital

Dear Gill Thank you so much for you very kind words relating to the care of your husband at A&E. I am really delighted that your experience of care with us was compassionate and that the staff acknowledged and understood what being away from home at this time would mean for you both. This is a good example of how important it is that patients receive the type of care that is individualised to their needs and situation, I am so pleased this was your experience. I do hope that your husband was well enough for you both to enjoy the rest of your holiday and that he continues to recover at home. Best Wishes Annie Annie Laverty – Director of Patient Experience
