About: University Hospital Of North Tees

(as the patient),

What I liked

One of the nurses and one of the health care assisants from EAU were really kind when I was distressed, I have been on the ward 6 or 7 times in the past year with mental health issues, and they made me stay better

What could be improved

The doctors attitudes towards mental distress.

Anything else?

Thanks to the care assistants. I'm glad that you were working when I was in - at least two of you can make me smile when I don't want to, and that said I hope I never see you in EAU again!
