"Holiday illness"

About: North Devon District Hospital / Accident and emergency

I was taken ill on the first day of my holiday in Ilfracombe and had to ring the paramedics they were there within 15 minutes and took me to A&E where I was taken straight to a bay it was a very busy night but I was admitted to Lundy ward and looked after by the staff extremely well, fortunately I was diagnosed and released the next afternoon with a letter for my GP. I have to say how well I was treated throughout by all the staff with dignity and humour even though they were extremely busy Thank You.

Response from Jayne Kruszewski, Customer Relations Manager, Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust

Dear Brian

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback on the website. I was very pleased to learn you were treated so well, at what must have been a very anxious time for you, and a very busy time for the hospital.

I have forwarded your very kind comments on to the ward manager for Lundy, where they will be warmly received and shared with the staff.
