"Excellent care from three wonderful departments."

About: Derriford Hospital

Anything else?

I have two conditions that require me to attend Derriford Hospital often. I attend the Dermatology and Rheumatology departments as an outpatient. I have always found the hospital beautifully clean and the staff are wonderful. They have all changed my life from my fantastic consultants to my nurses and the receptionist at Dermatology he is so friendly and polite. All the nursing staff in rheumatology department (so very Busy) always have a smile and work very hard to keep patients of all ages comfortable. The blood clinic staff who take my blood they are so comforting and kind. I am so grateful to these professionals and I am glad I have such a good hospital in my city
