"Care and support given to my husband after a mild strke"

About: NHS Direct NHS Trust Royal Gwent Hospital / General Medicine

(as a relative),

I called Nhs direct at 7. 30 am and within a few minutes a paramedic was at our home, my husband had suffered a mild stroke, the paramedic then took my husband to the Gwent hospital, where he was given support and care as soon as he arrived.

He stayed at the hospital for 4 days, and was given first class treatment, all the staff & doctors were caring and thorough throughout his stay.

We would like to thank you all for outstanding treatment from start to finish.

I have sang your praises to everyone I speak to.

Well done Royal Gwent Hospital x
