I attended Hexham for day surgery Tuesday 21 July. I was very nervous but was put at ease immediately by my nurse. The staff were all aware I suffer anxiety attacks and all the staff that saw me before my operation put me at ease. I wish to say a special thank you to all the aneasthetists for their superb nerve block procedure pre-op and witty banter which helped me a lot and the kind nurse who was in recovery - sorry I forgot your name but that was only as I was a little groggy. Also thanks to a particular member of staff from physio. The day surgery department was very private with individual booths that lock with plenty of space - I never saw another patient it was that private. Of course a special thanks too to the surgeon and their registrar for undertaking my procedure. I am starting physio today and although am not sure how long it will take before I am fully recovered, I am on the road to recovery. If I had to have further surgery in the future I would want it at Hexham Hospital. I cannot fault them in anything and cannot thank them enough for their absolutely fantastic care throughout. I have already recommended the place to a friend and was pleased others recommended the place to me. Thanks again Hexham. If I lived a little closer (I am from Cumbria) I would love to work there too.
