"emergency admission"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead)

I was admitted a few month back with suspected appendicitis and I must say the staff in A&E are amazing it was so busy and the patience was fantastic. . I then met registrar he was superb I went to surgery centre where I met the surgeon the next morning. What a gentleman.. his bedside manner was nest I've experienced. Previously sent home with same symptoms and treat terrible I had doubts but just goes to show when doctors listen it makes difference. I had appendix out and he found endometriosis which I'm getting sorted next week so he truly helped me .. Thanks to all the team... Donna ross
