"Appalling."

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

What could be improved

My partner was admitted on a Bank Holiday as an emergency suspected meningitus case. We arrived at 9:10pm approximately and he was not medicated until 1:45am. A skeleton staff meant unacceptable waiting times and overworked staff. Do not become ill and be admitted to Darlington Memorial on a Bank Holiday would be my advice. Go elsewhere!
