"All round excellent service from South Tyneside..."

About: South Tyneside District Hospital

I had a large sliver of wood lodged under the full length of my finger nail requiring me to visit A&E to have it removed. The experience and care I received was exceptional and the whole process from checking in to treatment took just 45 minutes. I was seen to by a senior A&E nurse and a 3rd year student nurse, who were both brilliant. The sliver of wood was removed, finger was bandaged and I was despatched with a course of antibiotics. All round excellent service!
