"Ward 16"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

I was admitted to the ward on a monday and I am a very anxious person the staff helped reassure me straight away and even the cleaners help keep spirits up so all staff on the ward are fantastic I needed to goto another hospital for a scan and a 1st year student nurse accompanied me they were brilliant they helped keep my anxiety low at all times. I also had a panic attack while on the ward and as soon as staff got informed by another patient they came to help straight away I am now getting transfered to another hospital and wish I could take the staff with me.
