"My stay in North Devon District Hospital, Barnstaple"

About: North Devon District Hospital / Accident and emergency North Devon District Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I was airlifted to the hospital from Tintagel having fallen down a gully and broken my leg. I was in Barnstaple from Monday through to Thursday.

The various professionals I came into contact with were all outstanding. I have to give especial praise to the staff of Capener Ward, especially Charlie (day team) and Shelley and Kate (night team) who all dealt with me sympathetically, professionally and with good humour.

It made the stay so much more bearable and all of the staff on the ward are to be commended for their outstanding care and patience.
