"Everything one could possibly hope for - and more!"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

From the moment I was referred to Rake Lane for potential inguinal hernia repair - until now when I have emerged with surgery complete, the whole experience has been exceptionally good! Every member of staff treated me with respect, good humour, understanding and professional service of the highest standard. If only I could name names - the list would be long and the individual praise would be enormous. What I can say is that the main hosting department today has been Day Surgery, and the surgical team was the one that focussed on upper GI surgery - with emphasis in my case on multiple hernia repair.

There has not been even one tiny way in which i could find any fault - absolutely top class from A to Z!
