About: North Tyneside General Hospital North Tyneside General Hospital North Shields NE29 8NH
My parents in law have been misfortunate enough to be admitted to this hospital several times during the last year. They are both in their 80's - one suffers with Parkinsons Disease and the other is a stroke victim. The lack respect shown to them has been quite astonishing and failings in their care borders on neglect - both have suffered further injury whilst in the hospital. Both were in the same ward together for several weeks which resulted in our losing their home carers. We were given very little notice when they were to be discharged which meant the family and social services had insufficient time to put new care in place for them. Far from being supportive, the hospital threatened them with eviction if they did not leave on the intended date! As a result we were forced to have them placed in respite care which was not suitable for their needs and which caused further deterioration to their health. Shame on you all!
