"What a wonderful example of NHS care - Thank you"

About: Exmouth Hospital

My husband bought me in to the Minor Injuries Unit following a fainting episode. The nurses were all amazing - kind, caring, really wonderful people. It is amazing how someone holding your hand can make you feel so much better! These people genuinely care - it's quite humbling really. Then a doctor came over and they were also great. People who read the Daily Mail and criticise the NHS have obviously never been to Exmouth Minor Injuries Unit. I cannot sing its praises enough. Thank you to all concerned.
