"Kind and Caring Staff"

About: Derriford Hospital

Anything else?

In November 2013 I was admitted to the Derriford Hospital (ICU) Intensive Care Unit for one night in a coma and another night for observation. I was then moved to a ward in the Hospital for a further two nights observation. I have nothing but praise for all the staff I come into contact with at the ICU they were both kind, caring and very considered to my problem, the nursing staff and Doctors on the ward where I spent two nights were also equally Kind and caring and considerate. I would certainly not hesitate in returning to Derriford Hospital should the kneed arise.
