"I was an inpatient at North Tyneside ..."

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was an inpatient at North Tyneside General Hospital from April 2007 to November 2007. The media is often critical of the treatment patients receive in NHS hospitals but in my experience this was certainly not the case. My surgeon was very supportive, the ward manager on ward 6 and her staff at all levels were tremendous and made me feel part of a family. My wife and family were also very appreciative of the care I was given.
