"Great care great staff"

About: Torbay Hospital

What I liked

My whole experience was really good from visiting my GP (on a Saturday!) to quickly having a scan and seeing the Consultant. I felt in good hands. On the day of my operation I arrived at 12, was seen by a nurse then the Consultant and an anaethatist to explain everything. I was very nervous going down to theatre but once there they put me at ease. I came round in the recovery room and wow! toast and tea which was lovely. I was in a lot of pain and had pain relief then was moved later to the rest ward. All nurses were great. I am now recovering at home and would like to thank everyone involved in my care. I hope I never need another operation but if I do I will be in the safest of hands at Torbay. Thank you.
