About: North Devon District Hospital / Breast surgery

I could not have wished to be anywhere else at this difficult time, I was given a side room so that my husband could be with me throughout my stay, the staff where amazing, reassuring and attentive both day and night, I have no complaints whatsoever, the food was acceptable and the care was exemplary, the surgeon visited me the day after surgery and explained what they had found and what to expect next clearly and calmly, taking time to answer all of my questions, 100% satisfied with my stay, a big Thank you to all of the NDDH staff, you do a fantastic job

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

Dear patient

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I was so pleased to learn that you had such caring treatment, and that staff took the time to explain everything to you in detail, as it must have been a very worrying time for both you and your husband.

I have shared your very positive comments with the surgical team, where I know they will be warmly recieved, and shared with the surgical team.

I hope you are now fully recovered from your surgery and wish you well going forward with any further treatment.
