"A&E attendance"

About: The James Cook University Hospital

Attended A&E with a my child who had a head injury. Very prompt and professional triage from a delightful Registered Nurse. Medical assessment was excellent, patient centred and reassuring. It is good to know we have such a capable A&E Team serving our local area. Many thanks.
