Following a hernia operation (which went well) I was discharged and informed that there was no need for any further follow up. I was given information how to care for the wound and telephone numbers to call if there is any problems. A coupe of weeks later I had a extremely large swelling in the wound area and I went to my GP who rang the hospital on my behalf and informed that I would not be seen and would have to go to a&e.My doctor was so concerned that they rang the consultant at South Tyneside hospital who agreed to see me although Iwas not their patient. I have no complaints about the operation at North Tyeside Hospital but the after care could be improved.
