About: Darlington Memorial Hospital Darlington Memorial Hospital Darlington DL3 6HX
My son was admitted to A&E over the weekend.
He had been assaulted and severely punched in the face.
He was left to wait for around 5 hrs as the X-ray department
Was closed till the morning, he received pain relief for which we were
Grateful but really that was that.
Once X-rays had been taken and a double
Fractured jaw has been diagnosed he was told that due to
Lack of resources he would have to makes his own way to the
James Cook Hospital.
He was then let go High on meds as a kite no one from the staff
Assisted him to the awaiting car we organised nor
Was his fractured jaw supported in any way.
Thoroughly disgusted parent also staff at James Cook were
Amazed at the way he had been treated.
