"Ward 2"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

Anything else?

My mother had recently spent a great deal of time on ward 2. The care shown by the majority of staff was excellent. Although Mam has now passed the care shown by the nurses at the time was considerate, thoughtful and caring. I would like to say thank you to the staff and nurses who helped care for Mam throughout her care.
