"day surgery on ward 11"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

I was admitted at midday and was home by 6pm. I know some wait longer but I cannot be thankful enough to the efficient and professional staff in ward 11 and theatre. I felt respected throughout a very personal procedure. Thankyou. My only compliant is being assessed by a nursed who was chewing gum while attending to patients. One of my biggest pet hates espacially in a hospital.
