Care was first-class

I was admitted to South Tyneside District Hospital on December 31.

I would like to thank Dr Shah and the medical staff for the first-class care and attention I received, because without it I doubt very much I would be here today.

I would also like to thank the Acute Respiratory care team, who visited me at home three times a day, for the excellent care and treatment I received from them once I was discharged from hospital.
