"Our experience of North Tyneside general this week..."
About: North Tyneside General Hospital North Tyneside General Hospital North Shields NE29 8NH
Our son was rushed in to Rake Lane 3 days ago and had an appendectomy. This was a very challenging and emotional time for our ourselves as well as our son! I have to say that all of the staff on Ward 10 were simply fantastic! The surgeon made time for us, gave clear explanations throughout - and we were confident in his abilities. However, there was one nurse on Ward 10 that deserves a special mention. The way in which she talked and engaged with our 11 year old was outstanding. Her professionalism, attitude, and abilities were second to none. Our son was made to feel part of each and every decision and he was treated superbly throughout. Thanks from our family to this nurse for being so kind and caring. She is a credit to the North Tyneside General, to the NHS, and to her profession.
