"Recently stayed for couple of weeks on 33 and 34"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

I was recently admitted to ward 33 for a day or so, the staff were great from cleaners and caterers, to the nurses and sisters. I wasn't keen on the choice of sandwiches for lunch time and limited choice at tea time, however once I moved onto ward 34 I found I could choose my meals which was a lot better. The staff on this ward were a lot friendlier-very jolly and smiley and made my visit a pleasant one. The cleaners were always making conversations with myself and the rest of the patients in the room. The girl who did the the teas and coffees was always friendly and she always remembered how I liked my tea. One nurse in particular always had a smile on her face which cheered us all up in the mornings Overall I was happy with my stay and hope that if I ever have to stay again I have the same staff looking after me
