"Referred for tests"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Referred for tests to Ward 2 (stroke ward). The NHS have been amazing today! My husband was ill this morning I took him to his doctor who saw him quickly. He was transferred by ambulance, which arrived without a long wait to Durham. When I arrived most tests had been carried out however the consultant came and spoke to me about the outcomes. We were both informed at all times, by staff, of what would be happening and when. We were reassured by the staff and were never left wondering if we had been forgotten.

We are now home but could not fault any aspect of the treatment recieved today.

Thank you
