About: Wansbeck Hospital Wansbeck Hospital Ashington NE63 9JJ
A close relative has been in this hospital for the last 15days waiting for a transfer to Freeman hospital for important tests. During this time his ward has been quarantined twice (yes twice) due to the norovirus bug which my relative caught within 10hours of arriving on the ward and his transfer delayed due to the freeman not wanting the bug transferring to them. This is unacceptable and I see only cdiff and MRSA is recorded. There is now a huge backlog of patients waiting to be transferred. This had got to be the worst hospital I have ever visited.
