"Feet again"

About: Tiverton and District Hospital

Following my bunion op at Tiverton last year, I came in again to have 2 hammer toes corrected and 2 bunionettes removed. This was a day surgery procedure. Once again the care was superb. The surgeon explained the procedures and I felt quite relaxed about the event. All went well. I have been in many hospitals and quite frankly without a shadow of doubt, Tiverton is the best. The staff are great and well organised. I feel that I actually matter rather than just being 'a patient'. Importantly the staff work as a team. It could be argues that this hospital is different because it is small. Well, I beg to differ. Any hospital could change its procedures to work in this manner. Thanks to everyone. Suggest other hospitals in Devon visit and learn.
