"Overnight stay"

About: Wansbeck Hospital

Anything else?

I attended casualty on Monday evening, about 19:10 with severe chest pains and was seen very quickly. Unfortunately i can't remember everyone's name who attended to me. I cannot sing all their praises highly enough. They were informative and considerate, their professionalism was very re-assuring and gave me confidence that I was in good hands. I was kept in over night while tests were carried out, and released promptly on Tuesday morning with medication and good advice. This was the first time I have ever stayed overnight in any hospital. Excellent service Wansbeck Hospital you have my sincere thanks

Response from Wansbeck Hospital

Dear Jim, I imagine it must have been very frightening for you to be admitted with severe chest pain, especially when you'd never had reason to stay overnight in hospital before. Thanks so much for getting in touch to let us know how much you appreciated the care you received at Wansbeck. I am delighted that our service was reliable, timely and co-ordinated and that your contact with staff revealed all of the 'human touches' that enabled you to feel confident that you were in the right place receiving the right kind of care. I will pass on your kind note of thanks to the team who I know will be very grateful to receive it. Best wishes, Annie Annie Laverty - Director of Patient Experience.
