"excellent service at Derriford hospital"

About: Derriford Hospital / General medicine Tamar Referral & Appointments Centre

(as the patient),

When I went to Derriford Hospital this year (March 2012) there were several tests I had to undertake so I was pre-warned that I would be spending a few hours at the hospital. I was fully informed by my GP and also a member of the hospital staff exactly what to expect at my appointment which I found really helpful. I cannot praise the medical staff enough. They were kind, caring and efficient and I would recommend family and friends because of my positive experience at Derriford.

One lady I have to highlight is the ultrasound nurse. She was a joy to meet and actually made the process a pleasant one.
