"Excellent care"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

I fell while hill walking last weekend and after admission to Hexham A&E I was transferred to Rake Lane Ward 9, the level of care was top class. The surgeons, nursing staff, ward ancillary staff & porters took great care of me before my operation and every part of the procedure was fully explained and my options clearly explained.On completion of the op the after care offered by the Physio team was caring and understanding, the follow up visits by the surgical team were again informative. When I was sent home time was spent explaining my medication to be taken and precautions to be taken, this was explained in a clear & precise manner. Many thanks Mark
