"Attendance at Torbay Hospital A & E"

About: Torbay Hospital

Anything else?

On Sunday 23rd December 2012, I had an accident while riding a quad-bike which resulted in cuts and bruising to my face and a bad cut on my hand. I attended the A & E department of Torbay Hospital. I cannot speak highly enough about the care I received. Everyone involved, (nurses, doctor, radiologist, porter, receptionist, consultant) were caring, polite, considerate, thorough and helpful. They cleaned up and stitched up the cuts, gave me a tetanus injection and sent me for an x-ray to check that I had not cracked any bones in my face. They allowed some of my family to stay with me and even made us some coffee! I am 80 years old, by the way. Everyone who dealt with me was great. Thank you all very much.
