"Friendly and courteous"

About: Friarage Hospital Site

I attended the Friarage as a day patient for a minor but important procedure. I was treated with courtesy and respect. The staff were extremely efficient and friendly and explained clearly what would happen and gave a understandable resume after the procedure. Thank you.

Response from Friarage Hospital Site

Good morning

Thank you for your kind comments left on the NHS Choices Website expressing gratitude for the care and treatment recently afforded to you by the Gynaecology Department at the Friarage Hospital, Northallerton.

It is always pleasing to receive a message of thanks and I very much appreciate you taking the time to contact the Trust.

I will ensure your kind comments are passed to Senior Managers for the relevant area, so the members of staff concerned are made aware of the positive feedback received from you.

It may interest you to know the trust welcomes nominations for the Trust’s annual ‘Nightingale Awards’ which, once a year, recognises the important contribution nurses and midwives make to patients and their families on a day-to-day basis.
