"Excellence in ward 9"

About: Wansbeck Hospital

Every member of staff with whom I came into contact after my stroke, were, without exception, the most caring and sympathetic people I have ever met, anywhere. Nothing was too much trouble for them. I watched as people in a worse state than me were treated with dignity and good humour even under severe provocation, even threats of physical violence by one patient were brushed aside and the same level of care offered to that patient as too all of us .A very happy and caring environment was my overall impression, whilst personally undergoing the most devastating moments in my life so far. I Thank you ,One and all.
