"General out patients"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Today i attended my first appointment to see the consultant. can i just say what a lively person this is, they were so understanding and caring as were two nurse specialists too. I wasnt looming forward to my visit because of past care by certain health care assistants causing me to feel scared about coming back ,although it was a different department it still brought back horrible memories, but this consultant and all their colleagues today restored my faith in UHND. All my care was given to me by choices and everything was explained in great detail and with easy understanding. I will return in 4 months without any fear. Big thank you to you all xxx
