"Great hospital great staff"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

What I liked

Getting admitted on a Saturday I was a little worried I quicklie found out there was nothing to worry about at all. If surgery could be a good expiriance then this was a great one. The Surgeon listened to my worries and fears and adapted his approach acordingly. The anesthetist was very relaxed and approachable . The nursing staff where very attentive. I felt nothing was too much trouble.The ward was immaculate light and airy.

What could be improved

The only let down I felt was the food .Im one of those people who liked school dinners and on other hospital admittions in other hospitals I enjoyed the food so as you can see Im not that fussy but I was asking my visitors to bring sadwiches as it was not nice .

Anything else?

Great experiance over all and would be more than happy to go back to this hospital again .
