"Exceptional Health Care"

About: Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust

I wish to record my heartfelt gratitude for the exceptional healthcare I was fortunate to receive from the nursing staff based at both Cramlington & Seghill.

I am over whelmed by the service provided by the entity and its professional staff.

Having received procedures to my scalp here in South Africa I wished to travel to the UK to attend my sons wedding; the process had not been completed however the doctors here permitted my travel with a suitable dressing which required daily changes; this was provided by the gifted nurses at both centers.

All nurses I met were compassionate and proficient.

Please copy this text to all concerned during my treatment in the period April and May 2016 and feel free to publicly use this text.

From a very grateful visitor.

In order for me to forward your heartfelt review to all of the staff involved in your care, I need a little more information from you if that's possible ?
