"My Mother Doreen was admitted ..."

About: South Tyneside District Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

My Mother Doreen was admitted to your hospital Jan 26th after having a stroke at home, she was seen immediately by the ER doctor and admitted straight away. I have nothing but admiration and praise for the nursing staff of ward 5 they made our family welcome at all times, explained everything to us as each day went by. Unfortunately our mother did not survive she died 11 days later, but the care she received was excellent, please keep up the good work.
