About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead)

Anything else?

one of the best teams mine was feet, this time (due to poilio as a child) treated with utmost dignity, and care,theatre staff excellent above and beyond, and the best foot surgeon i could say in the country his attitude 'Its my job, you don't have to thank me' i had a problem it was no trouble arranged to see me quickly ,was not happy so i was placed into emergency surgery and seen too straight away late on a friday, i was treated the theatre staff new i was afraid and supported me all the time and kept me calm, i was kept in overnight and next morning first thing Mr patterson was on the ward explaing everything and making sure i was okay, i expect this is something in private hospitals but not here, i wish there was another way to thank him and his team.

he carried out ops i never knew was available, so suffered in silence a referal from the knee surgeons they are great i have heard no bad things here you are safe, be confident they do look after you
