About: University Hospital Of North Durham

What I liked

My wife was admitted on August 26th as a trauma case and the treatment she received leading up to her operation and in the days following could not have been faulted by either my wife or myself.

She was found a bed within a couple of hours of being seen by the doctor who made the diagnosis of her condition, operated the same afternoon and was attended to by the nurses and other staff giving help and support at all times.

The staff whom we were in contact with on Ward 15 were all dedicated to their jobs. their patients and the patients well being.

In our opinion they did an excellent job in spite of being extremely busy and under staffed.

What could be improved

Any improvement could only be made by having more nurses as dedicated as those on Ward 15 to allow the nurse to spend more time to attend to patients needs a little quicker.
