About: North Devon District Hospital

My appointment was 0930, I arrived on time, I was straight in for a ECG, a few minutes later a breathing test was carried out , then almost immediately taken along to see the Consultant.( good job I had my blood pressure taken before I saw them), they were delightful, the type of Doctor who puts you at ease, very professional. I was out, and on my way home in the hour, now that's what I call service. All in all, a very pleasant visit, and that's how its been for me throughout my life long visits to our wonderful N.D.D.H.
