"nurse on ward 12 saved my husbands life ."

About: Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

If the nurse on ward 12 had not been vigilant the doctors couldn't have saved my husbands life, although not out of the woods he at least has a fighting chance, I couldn't be more grateful to them all.

I hope you also have access to any support that you might need? If not, I will be more than happy to provide you with some information?

My email address is Annie.Laverty@nhct.nhs.uk should you like to have a chat or would like the details of support services in your area.

I will pass your kind comments to our wonderful nurses on Ward 12.
