"Cardiology - Angiogram"

About: Wansbeck Hospital

Admitted on a mixed day ward (six beds) for an angiogram in August 2014. The staff were very good at getting me relaxed and settled in. It was a mixed ward, but the staff were very good at maintaining peoples dignity at all times. They were very professional and caring for all the patients. The toilets (which in some hospitals can be a bit messy) were clean and tidy at all times when I visited them. I can't thank them enough for making me comfortable and carrying out the procedure quickly and efficiently. My only gripe is having to pay for parking (which is £4 for 24 hours), which is affordable for me, but may not be for those who have to regularly attend hospital. Having said that it's cheaper than some other hospitals I could mention.
