"Outstanding care"

About: Wansbeck Hospital

I had my hip operation on Tuesday 10th November 2015.

I was overwhelmed by the fantastic care and attention that I received by the dedicated team at Wansbeck hospital.

My journey started with a phone call on the 5th November inviting me to the hospital for my operation. The secretary delivered the best news I've had in a long time, they were very helpful. The following week I went in for the operation I was met by the pre assessment team, they made me feel at ease from the moment I went through the door.

I was then taken to the theatre the anaesthetist team were very reassuring and caring.

The operation was successful and went to plan. The doctor came to visit me after the operation and was very professional.

Overall I had a very positive experience at Wansbeck hospital. The staff were very professional, caring and helpful. The nurses also made my wife feel at ease whilst I was in the operation.

Response from Wansbeck Hospital

Dear RobMackey33

Your comment is very heartening to hear- particularly that you have had such a good experience throughout all of your care - from pre-op assessment, through to the theatre and after your operation. I’m also very pleased that your wife was reassured while you were in surgery.

I hope that you are now recovering well at home and I will make sure the team is aware of how pleased you have been with the care they provided.

With best wishes

Claire Riley, director of communication and corporate affairs
