"The Staff of NDDH"

About: North Devon District Hospital

My husband was admitted to A&E with chest pains and transferred to Cardiology . From the moment he went on Victoria Ward the care he received there was second to none. Wonderful staff , nothing was too much trouble.The ward was spotlessly clean . the food was fine , my Husband had no complaints at all..I was really worried about my Husband, but when I saw the care and attention he was getting my mind was put at rest. The Friday Leading up to this.. my Husband had a Cardioversion at NDDH...While waiting for the day of the test, they were always there at the end of the phone if you needed them.. I could ring up and speak to them about my worries about the test and they would always have the time to re-assure me. They visited my Husband while he was in Hospital and although I am sure they were run off their feet with work they always makes you feel that you matter. So we feel we are very lucky to have The North Devon District Hospital and the Staff who work there... Thank you all. Rosina.

Dear Anonymous

Thank you very much for taking the time to post your comments on the website.

I was very sorry to read your husband was admitted to NDDH with a heart attack, however I was very pleased to see he received he such good care from both Victoria ward and the Cardiology team, at what must have been a very worrying time for you.

I have shared your positive comments with both the ward manager, and Cardiology team, where I know they will be warmly received.

I do hope your husband is now recovering and on the mend.
