"Care given to my granddaughter"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

My granddaughter was admitted to Darlinton Hospital to have her tonsils removed at the age of seventeen. After the operation she was discharged as the operation seemed to have been sucessful. For know apparent reason she was over the next two weeks readmitted three times with heavy throat bleeds. My granddaughter was treated in A&E was admitted to ward 11 and 31. The thoughtfulness of the people including the A&E reception ladies and security people doctors nurses was excellent. I am so gratful for all there care help and understanding as I was so upset at the state my granddaughter was in. I could not of asked for any better help and care for her. Once again many thanks .
