Response from Hexham General Hospital

Dear Sherrilyn, Many thanks for taking the time to tell us your story. I can imagine how anxious you felt prior to your procedure - a very natural reaction. I am so pleased that the nurse caring for you demonstrated all the kindness and compassion that was necessary to put your mind at rest. Our staff recognise how important this is and so I'm glad that you also recognised these values and behaviours in the Consultant you saw. I will share your kind feedback with the orthopaedic team - it will mean a great deal to them. Finally thank you for noticing the hard work of our domestic staff and all they do every day to keep the hospital so clean. With all best wishes as you recover at home, Annie
