"very best of care"

About: Peterlee Community Hospital

Anything else?

I am nearing the end of my treatment for cancer of the stomach/ oesophagus. I attended the Peterlee walk in centre December 2012. I seen a Doctor regarding my breathlessness and feeling feint. He admitted me to Sunderland Royal where I was diagnosed with this horrible disease. I would just like to thank with all my heart the Dr who directed me to the Royal for further in depth tests. You literally saved my life.
