"Pain Management and Sunderland Ward"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

Anything else?

Please convey my thanks to all concerned at Sunderland Ward Outpatients and in particular the Pain Management Team on Thursday,1st August 2013. I was treated very courteously throughout by all concerned. The one concern that I have is the condition of many of the chairs in the Sunderland Waiting Area. Some patients needed physical assistance in getting up once they had been seated. This aspect needs addressing with some urgency.
