"My experience at Freeman .Open heart operation."

About: Freeman Hospital

Anything else?

I was very impressed with all the nursing staff from itu hdu and the ward staff .The care from the doctors was good but felt as i was rushed to be discharged . This was proven as i was readmitted the next day . I then was discharged again and then ended up at North Tyneside General. I would like to say the that the food served at Tyneside General has a much better system and quality of food .
