About: North Tyneside General Hospital

I would just like to place on record that my visit to NTGH for a sigmoidoscopy on the 5th of October was carried out in a very professional and caring manner, I would like to thank the Nurse who carried out the initial procedure with care and empathy, this was very much appreciated.

The doctor and endoscopy staff were also caring and professional, I would like to say a big thank you to all those who looked after me for my very short visit.

We know how important the relational aspects of care are when providing a high quality service, so it's lovely to hear how warm, friendly and professional staff were able to give you the reassurance you needed during your examination and assessment.
