"excellent care throughout"

About: Derriford Hospital

from my admittance into the Freedom Unit through to the surgery, recovery and stay in Lyhner Ward: Every member of staff was professional, extremely kind and caring. Everyone constantly worked so hard to make sure that I was comfortable, clean and pain free. All my needs were attended to with kindness, dignity and a cheerful yet professional manner. I cannot thank the staff enough for doing such a wonderful job in such a pressured environment.
