"wonderful care"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

Anything else?

I underwent a high tibial osteotomy in early May this year. I have nothing but praise for the entire staff at the hospital, especially those in Ward 8, and the associated staff (catering, cleaning, X ray, porters, oh too many to mention etc). The care was superb and professional; nothing was too much bother and I have absolute admiration for the way I was cared for. When you are in hospital it can make you feel very vulnerable if you're not feeling too good but everyone went out of their way to make you relax and get better.. This was also the opinion of all of the other patients in my room. Please pass on my thanks to all the staff at the hospital. They deserve recognition. Standards are very high and I would not worry about being admitted in the future. Thank you! Kathleen
