About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

Anything else?

On Wednesday the 21st, August, 2013, I sustained a very serious injury to my right leg after falling down some steps at the National Railway Museum at Shilldon, my excellent treatment started with the Paramedics of the County Durham Ambulance service and continued with my emergency admission to the A & E at Darlingtom Memorial Hospital. I was quickly assessed by the resident A & E Consultant and was admitted to the orhorpaedic ward 33 for surgery this was carried out by by a team of Surgeons. The operations seems to be entirely successful so far that I was discharged witin 24 hours of the initial surgery. I would like to place on record the wonderful treatment I received at this Hospial from the all the nursing staff the Doctors and the Surgeons. If ever I was injured again I would request I was admitted to The Darlington Memorial Hospital. The Hospial was spotlessly clean all the staff uniforms were clean and tidy.the food was excellent I had a Cheese Omelette which was piping hot.
