"Droopy Face"

About: Derriford Hospital

I attended A&E yesterday with a dropping right side of my face.

I was seen by the nurse in 5 minutes, by a doctor who diagnosed and prescribed in 10 minutes.

I was worried, but the treatment was brilliant, and I wasn't made to feel like I was wasting time as I wasn't in all that much pain.

It took longer for the Pharmacy to dispense than the whole time in A&E.

I feel I must congratulate the team, who were impressive and excellent.

Thank you so much.
