"A&E visit with 9 year old."

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford) / Accident and emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

In May my 9 year old daughter was referred to A&E by our GP. The waiting area was busy but we were seen quickly by the Triage nurse, x-ray department and the Dr. All the staff were friendly and efficient and built up a good rapport with my daughter. She was very nervous about having a local anaesthetic in her leg but they were very patient with her whilst attempting different procedures over a few hours. I would like to say thank you very much to all concerned.
