About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

Visit to endoscopy for a colonoscopy which is a daunting prospect. My appointment was made within 3 days of my GP visit and the procedure with 9 days. The pre visit was very reassuring. The day was equally well handled by the staff. The procedure was carried out by a doctor who was very pleasant reassuring and professional. Their team of two nurses with the theatre were excellent. Thankfully all was clear and I left having being dealt with extremely well.
