"To say poor is probably being kind!"

About: Torbay Hospital

What I liked

I wish I could find something I liked, I cannot - Sorry

What could be improved

Entire Diabetic team are poor, the service is poor and the support is poor, it's a shame as I woul dhave prefered to rate it higher, but only when they deserve it, come on team get it sorted out pleasents

Anything else?

The whole department needs a shake up, I can't put my finger on one thing but the consultants seem indifferent, the nurses are friendly but distant, support from the disabetic team by phone - when you need it, is very poor.
