I would like to thank the staff at the QE in Gateshead. My father was admitted on October 17th following a long battle with cancer. The staff in critical care and ward 9 ensured he was comfortable as soon as he arrived and were open and honest about his condition. As a family we were shown compassion and support and my father passed away calm and pain free on the 20th October. The staff could not do enough for us. We were able to stay with my father at all times and they listened to his and our requests and ensured they were carried out at all times. There is nothing I would have wanted to change about his care and I have no regrets that his life ended in this hospital.
