"Orthapaedic outpatients"

About: Derriford Hospital

Anything else?

Absolutely brilliant. Went to see a specialist for what turned out to be Shoulder impingement. Not only spoke to the specialist but had an Xray and Ultrasound to diagnose the problem and was given the treatment options all at the same appointment. No waiting for weeks for an Xray etc. Have every confidence that my problem will be resolved. Well done to every member of staff on this department, everyone was extremely efficient.
