"Dedicated care for cancer on tongue"

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford) / Oral surgery

(as the patient),

I recently underwent surgery for cancer on my tongue having a partial glossectomy and neck disection at the RD & E Hospital Wonford Exeter. I spent several days recovering on Otter Ward.

I have to put on record that I feel that the level of care I received from diagnosis to being given a clean bill of health was superb.

From Ward Cleaner to Surgeon everyone displayed dedication and professionalism to both my wife and I. I could not have had better care or a speedier result in the private sector.

A Big Thank You to everone involved. This was I believe the NHS at its best.

Politicians leave it be!
