"Holiday Accident"

About: Wansbeck Hospital

I was brought into the A&E department on the evening of July 7th with a broken wrist and attended the fracture clinic the following morning. I saw one of the consultants who explained the available options to me very clearly and who arranged for me to have day surgery that same afternoon. I was very impressed by the quality of my care. All the staff involved in my care showed an extremely high level of expertise and kindness. The doctor who I have since seen at York hospital said he would have been proud to have got the bones so well aligned! Many thanks to all.

Response from Wansbeck Hospital

Dear Angela, What a lousy thing to happen during your holiday to the North East - I'm sorry that you needed to spend any time in our hospitals rather than visiting the beautiful beaches of Northumberland. Thank you for taking the time to give the emergency care team at Wansbeck this lovely feedback. I know how much pride they take in meeting the needs and expectations of all the patients they serve - they will be chuffed to know that they got this exactly right for you. Great to hear your surgery was very effective and that your wrist is well on the mend. Please thank your usual doctor In York for his kind feedback too ! Do take good care of yourself, Annie
