"Life savers! Fantastic from start to finish."

About: Derriford Hospital

Anything else?

In August l had a stroke at work on the outskirts of Plymouth. The emergency crew were amazing as were the A & E department. I was then given fantastic diagnostic treatment and care on Moorgate Ward. Everyone was calm, friendly and reassuring and made a very traumatic time manageable. Thanks so much Derriford and our wonderful NHS to whom l owe my life. Cathy

It is great to know that the staff were able to reassure you throughout your stay and help you through such a traumatic time.

It will be my great pleasure to share your comments with all the teams involved and I know they would want me to convey their best wishes to you.
