"All the staff deserve the highest praise for their..."

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

What I liked

The high degree of care, kindness, patience and professionalism shown by staff at all levels to all patients. This was quite remarkable and applied throughout my five-day stay on all shifts. To say I was impressed would be an understatement.. I was mobile myself, and could get about under my own steam, but help and support for the less able patients around me was constantly available and willingly given. I had never been an in-patient with the NHS before and the whole experience gave me unexpected confidence in the organisation. Top marks to all concerned.

What could be improved

Nothing, in my experience.

Anything else?

I was admitted to hospital on an emergency basis, which in itself is daunting. However, I was made to feel relaxed and confident from the beginning, and there was always someone to ask if there was anything I needed to know. It was by no means the frightening experience that it could have been, thanks to the kindness and professionalism of the people involved.
