"Urgent Need Addressed"

About: Guisborough General Hospital (Maternity)

Anything else?

Went to see Guisborough General Hospital Urgent Care Unit when I felt extremely poorly on a Saturday, it was easier on me than trying to track down out of hours doctors and they were less impersonal than an A&E. Very pleasant nurse on duty who helped me and made me feel dignified and respected despite being a bit of a gibbering wreck.
