"UTI and kidney infection"

About: Newton Abbot Hospital

After calling 111, I was seen by the Devon Doctors over the Bank Holiday at the Hospital. I was told there were 3 people in front of me and I was dealt with very quickly. Quickest service of the NHS I have received in years. The Doctor was very pleasant and very informative. Thank you all,involved.

Dear Susan Lawes Thank you for your comments regarding the Devon Doctors Service, based at Newton Abbot Community Hospital. The staff always appreciate hearing about when things have gone well. As this is not a service provided by Torbay and Southern Devon Health and Care NHS Trust, I have forwarded your comments to The Devon Doctors for their information. I hope you are recovering well after your visit.
