"The NHS and its Trust Hospitals ..."

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

The NHS and its Trust Hospitals are constantly being pilloried by the media for their misdemeanours. My experience is very different.

In the past two weeks I have been referred to five departments in two hospitals - North Tyneside and Hexham. I have been met with nothing but efficiency, courtesy, kindness and patience from all the consultants and their staff.

Last minute consultations were arranged to save me travelling and communications between departments was exemplary, I cannot conceive of better attention.

What more can be asked of any institution.

Response from North Tyneside General Hospital

Dear Mr English

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your kind comments. We are pleased to learn that all the staff provided you with care that was beyond your expectations during your recent admission. It is very reassuring for the staff to know that you had a positive experience, particularly as you mention in this current climate when there is so many negative messages from the media.

Best wishes for your successful recovery.
