About: Exmouth Hospital

I can't speak highly enough of the treatment I received when I had to deal with a biopsy of an intimate area. My doctor put me at my ease and I didn't dread the follow up appointment as much. The only problem I had was in your very pleasantly free car park when the spacing was so tight that I had to climb in over the back seat in order to get in my car. Slightly embarrassing, to any onlooker very amusing I think.

Dear Anne

Thank you for your feedback regarding your clinic appointment, I was pleased to see your doctor put you at ease and reassured throughout the biopsy, however I was sorry to learn you struggled to get into your car after the procedure.

I have passed your comments on to the hospital manager, for consideration when the next car park review is due.

Many thanks
