"I was admitted to Hexham Hospital ..."

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was admitted to Hexham Hospital and then transferred to North Tyneside General. My condition was extremely serious and by the second day I had an emergency operation. I was kept anaesthetised for 12 days and then transferred back to Hexham.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my extreme gratitude to the doctors, nursing staff and Northumbria Healthcare Foundation Trust for having done such an amazing job in saving my life. The doctors showed great skill and dedication at every stage and the nursing staff were excellent.

I have always been generally fit and rarely needed medical care, so it came as a surprise to find what a wonderful support network the NHS was when I did became ill. The follow up care has also been impressive. Thanks for the great job you are all doing.
