"Northumberland A&E ward 3"

About: Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

From arriving Monday for a scheduled Tuesday morning surgery,to leaving Saturday afternoon l was looked after by all staff on ward 3 to a very high standard . Nothing was too much trouble, the care l received was first class. All nursing staff knew the instructions of my surgeon and carried these out meticulously , round the clock care l needed was outstanding , l could not have been in better hands in my vulnerable state. The ward was run efficiently and professionally. I continue to recover at home with confidence after my surgery knowing any problems l can ring the ward direct and speak to a member of staff l am familiar with. A shining example of how a hospital should function.
