"Shocking doctors"

About: Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

Over zealous doctor referred us to children's services. We went back to see another doctor to be told the first doctor shouldn't have referred us. Children's services tried on eight occasions to get some info out of hospital but they receive no answer or no one return their phone call. The first doctor only gave a two line description on the report to child services.

Response from Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital

Dear Lee,

I am very sorry that you have had conflicting information from your doctor, I can imagine just how frustrating this must have felt for you. It’s worrying that you feel information is not being passed between different services, has this now been resolved? If you need any help to get answers please do email me at Annie.Laverty@nhct.nhs.uk and I can put you in touch with the relevant team.

All the best,


Annie Laverty – Director of Patient Experience
