"Excellent Care"

My 85 year old Father and I were visiting my sister at her caravan in Rothbury when my Father took ill. The senior nurse at the Rothbury Community Hospital was able to see my Father immediately and conducted a range of tests including an ECG. He then arranged for an ambulance to transport him to Wansbeck. Whilst waiting for the ambulance staff provided us with refreshments and what appeared to be home made cakes. Everyone was extremely friendly and we couldn't have asked for better treatment. A real credit to the NHS.
