"Brilliant, friendly and efficient"

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

Recently visited A&E with my boyffriend who had nailed a piece of wood to his leg! We had to drive all the way from Exmoor Devon as there was no xray available in Tiverton that morning. Staff were sympathetic (with an appropriate dose of humour) and really kind to him and also to my panicked self. Very speedy service and patient was treated efficiently. My partner's job often involves him injuring himself and I feel v.lucky we have such a great hospital near us. I was an in patient years ago with severe asthma attack and I remember being really cared about not just made better. A massive thanks to all the staff at A&E.
