"Children's A and E"

About: Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

Excellent treatment from a Dr who inserted 11 stitches in the back of my 13year old boys head. The Dr was calm and efficient explaining everything. Today my son had his stitches removed by one particular Nurse Practitioner, I could not speak more highly of them. Being a nurse myself I fully understand the daily challenges in a hospital, but this nurse was fantastic they did a great job. I would like to nominate them for a patient care award. Please ensure they get to read this message and be congratulated on providing 5star treatment. Many thanks Thompson family
