"treatment from the lumbar/spine pathway was 1st class"

About: Derriford Hospital

(as the patient),

Having heard and seen so much bad publicity regarding the NHS over the last months/years I was expecting a long waiting time and my expectations were low.

However the young GP (Dr. Davey) treated me with care and enthusiasm, making the referral etc.

The treatment I received from the Lumbar/Spine pathway at Derriford was first class and has made my recovery much speedier and hopefully I will be back to full fitness very soon.

Many thanks to everyone involved.
