"Dart ward, excellent"

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

I recently spent a short post op stay on Dart ward and would like to commend all the staff on the care given. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with humour and compassion. The lovely member of staff who called me madam when asking tea or coffee to the staff who gave overnight care made the experience a very positive one. The NHS should be very proud of the RD&E as it always delivers on every score from excellent admin, cleaning & catering, nursing staff at all levels and all done with constant financial pressure. Keep up the good work it is really appreciated.
