"I hope they keep Tiverton Hospital going! "

About: Tiverton and District Hospital

(as the patient),

My husband and I have been to Tiverton Hospital quite a few times for different ailments. My husband has been here for the hernia clinic, and also to have cancerous growths removed from his face. I attend the bladder clinic and am also cared for by the therapy services. We sound like we have all sorts wrong with us but actually, we're pretty spritely!

I far prefer coming here, it's closer to home and it less of a complicated place to get to and find your way around. For my husbands cancer, we had appointments at Exmouth, Exeter and here but always saw the same doctor so if he needs to see them again we will insist on coming to Tiverton.

Every person we've been seen by has been kind, and they've all been very friendly. We feel very lucky to have such a good hospital so close by.

I hope they keep this place going, it would be such a waste to build such a nice hospital and then close it. I have absolutely no complaints at all, I think the place is wonderful and all the staff deserve lots of praise for what they do.
