"A big decision"

About: Torbay Hospital

I visited the feature clinic to see a consultant who was very polite, and put me at ease as they explained the options open to me on the best way forward with a long standing injury to my left foot, we agreed in the end with fusion as the best way forward, and the safest was a below knee amputation that they are currently arranging. I can only thank the consultant for making me so at easy with this news, when asked would I like Torbay Exeter of Derriford I was very definite that it should be Torbay for when it is carried out thank you for making a difficult choice an easy one.
