"Excellent care throughout"

About: Hexham General Hospital

I found the care and service I received from my initial appointment right throuh to the aftercare from surgery was excellent. The staff were very approachable and caring and made me feel relaxed - especially important as I was terribly nervous about my hernia operation. The consultant surgeon was excellent in explaining the procedure and giving me choices of dates for the operation. They gave me confidence that I would be well looked after. The entire staff in the team were superb and I could not have wished for better. Thank you for making my operation and stay as comfortable as possible. The hospital itself was immaculately clean and had a calm relaxed atmosphere which enhances its excellence.
