"Total hip replacement"

About: North Tyneside General Hospital

On the 15th April 2014 I was operated on at your hospital. I cannot speak too highly about the care and professionalism I experienced, especially the surgeon. The nurses were most solicitous in offering pain relief; the physiotherapists were firm but persistent. The occupational therapists were also supportive. The two weeks I spent in your hospital were surprisingly pleasant. The food was delicious and always served hot as appropriate. Thank you for all the care I received during my stay.
