"Paediatrics Unit"

About: Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

Myself and partner had to take our 6 month old baby boy to NSEC hospital late last night due to severe vomiting and diarrhea and i must say we received outstanding care from the moment we arrived until the moment we left.

From the receptionist to the nurses and doctor in the paediatric unit, all staff were extremely professional, caring and kind. The area of the hospital that we visited was immaculately clean and staff could not have been more helpful and sympathetic at what was a very worrying time for us. Nurses and the doctor were very patient and sympathetic to our baby and us, and i am extremely grateful to all. Unfortunately i was so concerned with my son that i didn't take the time to get names of the staff involved but each of them is an absolute credit to this hospital and the NHS. Thankfully after an overnight stay our son is now home and recovering well. I would highly recommend this hospital to anyone in need of care. An outstanding hospital and outstanding staff. Thank you so much.
