"2 years of excellent care"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

I have now had two years of the most excellent care and medical attention imaginable. The consultant suregeon involved has guided me throughout and has carried out six or seven operations on the same eye.

I have had more appointments with them than I can remeber and they have been caring, professional and reassuring throughout. All the staff who have helped me have been marvellous - friendly and efficient.

The story, however, is not yet over and it was with dismay that I heard that the consultant involved, is leaving the trust. I simply cannot thank them enough and wish them success and happiness in their new post.
