"Short stay"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

I was sent to this hospital from the QE in Gateshead and operated on in less than an hour of arrival. The surgeon explained everything to me and what to expect when I woke up. The next morning surgeon came to see me and told me how ill I had been but kept me informed of everything that would be happening. I was kept in hospital on ward 33c for 5 days and the staff were all really helpful and friendly they couldn't do enough for you, the food was lovely I've never known a hospital to do nice food I thought the soup would have been a packet type what is mixed with water but it wasn't it was home made. I can't thank the surgeon enough for putting me out my pain the only thing is I can't remember their name
