"Brilliant staff on ward 22"

About: Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust

My elderly mother was admitted to the QE hospital on March 30th and transferred to ward 22 from A&E within a couple of hours. I arrived an hour or two later and the staff were absolutely brilliant from the moment I arrived up to the time she died peacefully on Friday the 1st April. Their communications were very good and their care for all the very ill stroke patients was truly exceptional.

Very heartfelt thanks to the nurses and doctors on ward 22 from Graham, John, Michael and Stephen.

Response from Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust

Please accept our deepest condolences for your loss on behalf of everybody at QE Gateshead. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback about ward 22. It’s always very heartening when families take the time to let us know when we’ve provided such a good service, particularly during such a sensitive time. We will, of course, share this with the team on Ward 22 who will really appreciate such kind words.
