"several visits"

About: Ripon and District Community Hospital

in the last year I have attended Ripon hospital for various things, eye clinic, wonderful though very busy one is never made to feel rushed. A&E very competant at all the times I have been, torn ligament on finger, badly sprained hand. I go regularly for podiatory excellent service. In Ripon we cannot do without this hospital and its services if we don't use it we would lose it and how it would be missed. I had a friend in hospital here for many months and she was able to be visited by her friends and neighbours, Harrogate is too far away for many people to visit, parking is difficult there and wards a long way off. Her treatment was kind and caring.
