"very friendly and understanding staff"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

What I liked

I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks and had a bad anxiety attack on 2 of my visits to the fracture clinic. The nurses in the fracture clinic were all so nice to me. There was one nurse in particular in the x ray dept who went out of her way to calm me down and she was so understanding of my anxiety problems.
