"Surprisingly good. Excelent in fact ...."

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

What I liked

Very professional staff with excellent bed side manner. All the staff who were involved with the care of my partner and the birth of my son were fantastic. Your staff especially the midwives are your best asset!

What could be improved

The delivery suite was brilliant but the ward was far too hot and cramped .there was nowhere for visitors to store outdoor coats or bags etc except over a chair or on the bed which meant you could not sit down. Also we were next to the door to the toilets so everytime somebody wanted to use the toilets you had to move out of the way for them to pass which was inconvienient for me and embarrasing for the other patients as you could hear them using the facilities which is not very good situation.

Anything else?

Lifts are a bit frustrating when you are in a panic. Car parking is good with reasonable prices.Car Park ChargesPatient careTemperatureCar ParkToiletsWard
