"Seventy mile trip for treatment worth the journey!"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

I chose to come to North Tyneside through choose and book to have key hole surgery for a Hysterectomy on 22nd Sept, due to low blood pressure occuring in recovery for a previous procedure in my local hospital, I was very nervous. The care and treatment from the consultant the anesthetics and all nurses in recovery and on the ward put me at ease and I felt in safe hands. I was in recovery for 3 hrs being monitored and they never left me. I am now back home and feel fine and relived it is all over. The staff are so so busy on Ward 7 and the other wards they look after, but just have to fly around and look after everybody's needs as far as feasibly possible. Thankyou
