"Good and swift care in A&E and fabulous staff on..."

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

My 18yr old son became very ill on Good Friday. He was brought in by ambulance and was dealt with very quickly by very kind, despite being very busy, staff. He needed emergency surgery and he was very distressed. I can't praise the nurses and doctors on ward 6 enough! They went above and beyond to make not only my son feel reassured and cared for but ourselves too. I would like to pass on my gratitude to the staff on ward 6 for their professional, kind, and caring attitudes. Also to the A&E staff and the surgeon who operated on him

We will make sure our staff have the opportunity to read your kind feedback and appreciate the difference they made. Thank-you. Hope your son is recovering well and if you have any concerns please don't hesitate to come back to us, Annie
