"Praise well deserved."

About: North Devon District Hospital

I have had 3 major surgeries at North Devon District Hospital the orthopaedic team are absolutely professional and truly supportive in a most respectful and courteous manner. The warmth felt at a traumatic time in ones life such as major surgery. The whole of the hospital staff were comforting. Firstly was a whole left-knee joint. Then a left-shoulder joint and finally a left sided hip replacement 4 days ago. I am now up and walking. The reason i write this affirmation is because the orthopaedic staff at North Devon District Hospital have been the best in their work and their professionalism. Just to add i have an above knee right leg amputation and without their work and efforts this recovery would have been extremely difficult and i feel, i wouldn't be here walking today. I must applaud the whole of Tarka Ward Orthopaedic team, thank you. Seymour Pantry.
