"Thank you all so much you saved his life..."

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

What I liked

I am writing about the care my father has received in his visits since November 2010. He had a heart attack, then severe internal bleeding and on the most recent visit was diagnosed with gall stones.

I would like to thank and commend all of the staff who dealt with him from the paramedics to the nurses, doctors and consultants.

The A&E staff were fabulous and I'm sure we would have lost him but for their expert treatment.

The ward staff in Cardiology, Ward 4, 5 and Surgical Admissions were also brilliant.

When he was very poorly we were allowed to stay with him which meant a great deal to him and my Mum. We were kept informed on his progress and the staff were always willing to answer our questions.2010AdmissionsHeart attackPatient careProfessionalismWardCardiologyConsultantsDoctorsNursing staffParamedics
