About: University Hospital Of North Durham

The worst A and E in the county my daughter waited for 1 hour to see a triage nurse then a further 3 hours to get seen ,when the doctor finally came he was very nasty asking us why we where here on a sunday morning , the A and E is for people who have been stabbed or have had a heart attack ,will not ever again go to that hospital and intend to make a complaint about the service they give .
