"Nothing but praise."

About: The James Cook University Hospital

Anything else?

I have been an in and out patient at James Cook Hospital for over 13 years, and I have nothing but praise for the staff that I have had contact with in that time. I have been dealt with by these departments ( Nephrology, Diabetes ,Cardiac, Urology , Renal Social Workers and the cpap team. And treated on wards 2 and 5 ). I am not a well Man, but I have complete and utter faith with all the truly professional men and women that I have had contact with. I am going to be under the care of these people, and I would not want it any other way. Well done James Cook University Hospital, the staff and the NHS. .
