"Ward 12"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

My elderly mother who has advanced Altzheimers disease was admitted to Ward 12 with a fractured femur. The care she received on this ward was outstanding. Being unable to articulate her needs was a real concern to us prior to her admission but we need not have worried as she was nursed with total dedication and dignity, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The doctors, theatre team, and nursing staff were spot on in every aspect of her care. We are extremely grateful to all involved and could not have wished for better.
