"Lucky to have such a great emergency department."
About: Hexham General Hospital Hexham General Hospital Hexham NE46 1QJ
I just wanted to write to say how lucky we are in Hexham to have such a fabulous emergency department, (although I would prefer not to visit again!) I had to take my 15 month old in in December when he had a febrile convulsion. From the second we walked into the hospital he was looked after so well, particularly by the reassuring, calm and incredible doctor and nurse on duty that day. I was again impressed by the fantastic efficiency and friendliness of all the staff, from receptionist, nurses and doctor we saw today looking after my 5 year old following a deep cut to his chin. He was just very pleased with the lolly and sticker he got for being brave! Thank you to everyone who works there.
