"Nursing staff"

About: Tiverton and District Hospital

Recently i had to attend the hospital for a colonoscopy.I was treated with respect and with a lot of information being given before and througout the procedure. After care was perfect the nurses very attentive and friendly.Tea and sandwiches were offered. Should i have to attend this hospital again i would be totally at ease .
