"ward 10 CCU"

About: Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

After a recent stay here which meant having cardiac surgery I can say I was treated better than I ever have been. Not being from the area but being taken here for the care I needed could have been daunting. The nursing staff were fantastic, couldn't help enough, they were knowledgable to be able to answer any concerns and I found this reassuring.

A big thank you to all the staff on ward 10, nursing, assistant and trainees... A perfect team!!
