About: The James Cook University Hospital

Anything else?

I was treated for a heart attack at this hospital on the 31st aug. 2013. I was given the best possible attention that I needed from all the staff. Everything was explained, I never felt scared at all. No question I asked was a problem. The staff were amazing. I was admitted to ward 29. Staff nurse and her staff were just brilliant. The nurse who looked after me could not do enough for me. The whole department is amazing. Thank you once again, To all the doctors and staff at this hospital.
