"Excellent 5 star service"

About: Hexham General Hospital

I was admitted yesterday to the day treatment centre for a subacromial decompression. I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to all staff involved in my care from reception staff to Drs, nurses, anaesthetist's and anaesthetic nurses. I cannot that you enough for the outstanding care you provided, I was involved in the decision making process and treat with the upmost dignity and respect during what was a particularly stressful time for me. Discharge information provided to me was also extremely useful. I am sorry I cannot name everybody individually but please could you ensure my thanks is passed on to all staff on duty on Saturday 12th September 2015. I would have no hesitation in using your hospital again and would certainly recommend your service to friends and family,

Thank you for providing such an excellent service.
