Response from Hexham General Hospital

Dear Ms Maughan,

Sorry to hear that you were so upset, I hope you’re feeling a lot better - it’s reassuring that one of our nurses was such a comfort to you. I will do my best to track down the nurse who was a caring figure to you in that moment, I’m sure this member of staff will be pleased to read your review – as will the rest of the outpatient team at Hexham hospital. Thank you for sharing your experience with us, it’s excellent to know your care with us has been so wonderfully consistent.

All the best,


Annie Laverty – Director of Patient Experience
