About: University Hospital Of North Durham

My 80 yr old mum was recently an in patient in ward 12 having fractured her left hip. Being a very active 80 yr old this was potentially a life changing event. After 5 days in hospital she is now home and on the road to recovery. A big thankyou to all of the multidisciplinary team who helped her get there. Your enthusiasm and professionalism in what I am sure are very difficult and challenging times shone through and helped a very determined lady through a difficult week thanks again
