"The most traumatic experience of my life to date!"

About: Derriford Hospital

What I liked

The nurses and care staff very pleasant and helpful at all times.

What could be improved

Consultants to treat patients like they are people and not just an object, also to listen to patients and treat them with respect.

Anything else?

I had a very bad expereince in derriford and was made poorlyt because someone did not do their job properly. I am still unwell and feel like i will never get a definite diagnosis and the doctors do not communicate with each other and you never get to see the same doctor.
