"Amazing care by amazing people!"

About: Derriford Hospital / Accident and emergency

I had to be taken by ambulance to Derriford as I was in severe pain due to a back problem and there was no other way to transport me. The ambulance men were wonderful, they helped me to get mobile, they made me laugh and were superb. The care I then received in A&E was also the best possible. I can't praise everyone enough for their genuine care and attention to someone who was in horrible pain and very worried. Thank you all so much, your kindness is so much appreciated. DP.
