"I prefer coming to Mount Gould, it's quieter and the staff are lovely"

About: Livewell South West Sentinel Healthcare Southwest Community Interest Company / Dermatology (skin)

(as the patient),

It's very nice here at Mount Gould. I'd heard about it from other people and there's a shop here.

I come for the Dermatology service. All the staff are so nice. Dr Roediger is so very helpful - noted all my points, sent to my GP, and had a biopsy at the same time which saved me having to come back again (plus I had a blood test).

I think the centre is fairly new, but I can remember Mount Gould from donkeys years, high up and bright.

I have a preference for coming here, Derriford's like a hotel, I've only been there when visiting, I've not been a patient there, but it's quieter here - it's all hub hub there.

There are comfy chairs here too, which matters a lot when you have osteroperosis of the spine.

It's quite a nice place for the elderly, I imagine they see a lot of elderly patients here. Lots of my friends think the same of the services here - and everyone likes the nice little cafe!
