Response from Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

Dear Sir / Madam, Many thanks for your review and for sharing with us the reasons why you were disappointed with the new hospital. I am sorry that you had such a long time to wait . Naturally we don't want any of our patients to walk away having had this kind of experience. Unfortunately I can't look into this any further without having more details of who you are, DoB etc if you would be willing to share these with me, my email is annie.laverty@nhct.nhs.uk . In the meantime I will be sharing your review with the team. With thanks again for taking the time to bring this to our attention, Annie
