"Elbow operation in day surgery unit"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

I was booked in to have surgery on my elbow Monday 25th July in Bishop Auckland but it was cancelled and moved to Darlington on the same date, having had operations at Bishop before I knew the procedure from start to finish so I was a bit stressed having to go to Darlington, I need not of worried! The ward staff and theatre staff were brilliant! I did however know my anaesthetist from before and Dr V J, Thank you! Darlington Memorial, Well Done and Thank you again. Donna Thompson
