"cannot be faulted"

About: Newton Abbot Community Hospital

Appointment for u\s guided injection. The hospital is clean and welcoming, a member of reception took me to the correct department, a very friendly welcome. My appointment was on time and everything explained to me before the scan was started, I didn't need the injection and this was explained and shown to me on the scan in terms that I could understand, the staff were very friendly and professional. In future I would like any treatment I have to be at Newton Abbot hospital, any hospital visit can be stressful but the staff at Newton seem to go out of their way to make this easier. Huge credit to you all.
