About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Anything else?

Although UHND is renowned for long waits in A&E (the rebuild cut an already inadequate number of beds) the out-patients is great - especially at Chester-le-Street, which even has places to park. I can't comment on anything except the rheumatology department, but the service was excellent.
