About: University Hospital Of North Durham

I had an operation for breast cancer way back in 2005, I was treat with respect, kept updated and had excellent care, I now live in Bradford, the hospital conditions here are awful to UHND, I spent 12 days in BRI last July and I was shocked at the difference, I was just bluntly told we think your cancer is back! I was scared and felt so alone, I wish I was still under the care of UHND, they should try the care here the people who condemn the care there, it is like going into the dark ages.
