"Old Fashion Nursing and Old fashioned Standards"

About: Blyth Community Hospital

I can not speak highly of the care on Ward 3 that was given to my mother in the last weeks of her life.

From the doctors , ward manager , nurses and care staff to the cleaning and even the catering staff all were professional and compassionate and caring there was no one that i met who was not sympathetic in a very difficult and distressing time for me.

There may be a new specialist care hospital at Cramlington in the Blyth Valley district, but Blyth Community Hospital is doing an incredible job for the elderly.I can only say thank you..

You all need to be congratulated

Well Done !

Response from Blyth Community Hospital

Dear Peter

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us feedback on your mother’s care, particularly at what must be a very difficult time for you.

Compassion is such an important quality for our staff to have so I’m very pleased that both you and your mother experienced this from all those who helped care for her.

I’ll ensure your kind words are passed on to all the staff on ward 3, they will be very pleased to receive them.

With warmest wishes

Claire Riley, director of communications and corporate affairs
