I have visited this hospital multiple times with different family members am constantly dismayed by the generally low standard of cleanliness and tidiness, which is probably exacerbated by the fact that it is quite run down. It is poorly signposted internally and after one particular appointment the hospital didn't have paperwork available for the specialist to issue a prescription which led to oversights resulting in my not receiving the prescribed treatment at all. The specialist was really cross that it had happened but I felt very let down. This place is, quite frankly, a bit of a backwater. If you have a matter that is non urgent and straightforward it is probably fine but for anything else I would suggest you go to Leeds or Northallerton. The internal comes procedures are just not up to spec for what we expect from a modern NHS.
