"only thing i liked at this hospital ..."

About: Wansbeck Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

only thing i liked at this hospital was the care recieved by all staff on ward 4 treated me with dignity and respect .Also surgical consultants were fantastic thank you ward 4 .

What could be improved

treatmeant in A and E .

Anything else?

after having been to A and E department twice and kept getting sent home it took my own GP to get me admitted where i needed emergency surgery , this had been overlooked on previous visits.Felt as if staff disregarded my feelings . very dissapointed with the treatment recieved at this hospital.
