"Thank you - A&E Dept"

About: North Devon District Hospital

Whilst on holiday last week with my family I needed to visit Barnstaple A&E unit for treatment to my big toe which had become infected. My injury was extremely painful and I could hardly bear for anyone to touch it. The Doctor was so kind and was very patient with me - I needed a local anaesthetic and both Doctors were brilliant at putting me at ease and making the treatment as painless as possible. The care I received was fantastic and it took them about half an hour to sort it all out including organising a prescription for pain relief and antibiotics. I was back at the camp site with the family within an hour of being seen. THANK you to these two lovely doctors, for not making me feel a nuisance and for sorting out this painful injury for me. So Grateful ! Wendy Shakespeare
