Response from Mary Anderson, Senior Quality Facilitator, Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust

Good afternoon and firstly my apologies for the late acknowledgement of your posting.

I am pleased to note that the nurse who cared for you on your admission to the Emergency Department on 7 December supported you throughout with explanations and clear communication about what was happening.

Please be assured that I will, albeit belatedly, inform the Senior Nurse Management team of your experience.

With best wishes
