"Extremely well looked after"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Was admired in the early hours of Monday morning due to vomiting blood, the waiting times were quoted as 20 minuets for the nurse and 2 hours for the doctor. I was seen straight away by the nurse and within 15 minuets by the doctor.

After which I was admitted to ward acute emergency care where I was held until being transferred to ward 14 until my discharge at 14.30 wednesday.

I must say I was very well looked after and all staff were exellent in every way,they all work so hard and always made one feel at ease.

Nothing was too much trouble for them no matter how busy they were, being in hospital is not always a pleasant experience but this hospital made the experience more pleasurable.
