"Pediatric Community Nursing"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

When my son suffered a ruptured appendix he was cared for by the Pediatric Community Nursing Team once he was discharged. What an amazing team of nurses they are, the care they provided was second to non.

I would also like to thank the Ambulance Crew along with the staff in A&E who were swift with their diagnosis, very supportive and professional.

Not forgetting the staff on Treetops who were marvelous.

Thank you all
