My son was recently admitted via A&E for an emergency appendectomy while we were on holiday in Devon. We visited A&E at 3am on a Saturday night and despite the usual plethora of "night out injuries" we were seen within 10 mins of arriving and my son was immediately admitted into the Fortescue Ward for treatment. The A&E staff were friendly and professional. Once on the ward he was immediately treated with painkillers and antibiotics and the consultant kept him fully informed. The ward was spotless, the staff friendly and professional and my son very well cared for. The consultant called me personally after his surgery (due to urgent priorities it was postponed until 11pm that night) to reassure me and give me details as to the operation and outcomes. Overall very pleased with all aspects of the help and support given - a wonderful, helpful, spotless hospital with friendly professional staff - thank you very much from a very relieved mother!
