"Amazing experience at RD&E Accident and Emergency department"

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford) / Accident and emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

After my 2 year old daughter had a nasty fall this week we called her GP and were directed towards A&E for treatment as she may have needed stitches. We arrived and were seen and treated within 1 hour. Amazing!

The triage nurse Annette was incredibly reassuring and understanding (I was really anxious as the first A&E visit with my first child! ) and we were sent away with information and the confidence to call them if we were worried.

Thank you so much for making a really worrying day so much easier than I'd imagined.
