"Experiences with the Department of Opthalmology"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

My husband was referred to this department in December 2015, as an emergency appointment.At this appointment he was dealt with both efficiently and reassuringly.

Subsequent appointments and surgery, under the leadership of the Consultant, were also, very satisfactory.

We wish to thank all the staff who helped him in various ways, be they Receptionists, Nurses or Doctors for their sensitivity and understanding of the needs of the patient and relatives. This made an otherwise stressful time much easier to deal with
