"Extremely satisfied patient"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

Anything else?

Consultant Surgeon is a miracle worker. I had major bowel surgery on 25.3.13, and returned to Ward 6 on 18.10.13 for a reversal of an ileostomy. The genuine care and concern received throughout my treatment was beyond my expectations. I was treat with such wonderful friendly professionalism and dignity from each and everyone of the staff who went about their duties with such enthusiasm. In fact I was given such a warm welcome when I returned the second time for surgery I felt like a VIP patient ! What more can I say than congratulations to my Consultant Surgeon and his tremendous team. Well done Ward 6. You all have certainly deserved the prestigious award you received this year. Thank you so very much
