"ectopic pregnancy surgery"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

On Thursday 26th May I found myself in A and E with stomach pain. Having found out I was having an ectopic pregnancy and needing surgery, I was scared. I have never been in hospital before and never had surgery, the whole process was a whirl wind experience, I arrived in A and E at 4:30pm and found myself in my own room in a gown by midnight.

The staff were amazing, kind and caring. My situation was delt with with care and sensitivity and I was well looked after. I could not fault one thing about the hospital, the staff were a credit to the NHS.

Thank you for taking care of me ward 9 and the team, you do a fantastic job and you made a really horrible situation better with your care.

thank you
