"Excellent treatment from Neurology Department!"

About: The James Cook University Hospital

Anything else?

Recently been in JCUH neurology, I would just like to express gratitude and praise for the surgeon and the department for the treatment I received for a microdiscectomy on my lumbar spine. From my pre op to leaving hospital after surgery I could not fault the staff or service they provided, they all made me feel at ease, least of all my sciatic pain was instantly gone and have been a new person ever since! Much appreciation to this ward and all it's staff.....highly recommend and faultless :) thank you all
