"Exceptional service"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

Having just had an operation I had the pleasure of been admitted to Ward 62. What can I say. The staff are extremely professional on all levels. They are friendly, helpful and nothing is ever to much trouble for them. They go out of there way to make what sometimes is an anxious period, waiting to go to theatre, very relaxing and made myself feel at ease. No matter what time of day or night they answered any question that was asked of them. It is so nice to see a team of staff come across with such friendliness towards each other and patients. You truly are a credit to the NHS trust and a massive thank you.
