"Superb Diabetic & Endrocrine Centre"

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

I attend this Department for my annual reviews and have done so for around 20 years now. As well as these appointments, I also get asked to attend the Medical School/research department to take part in several research projects. The nurses here have always been very welcoming and supportive. The paper work and research hypothesis are always discussed in detail and I receive clear information about what is required. I'm happy to give some of my precious time to help these studies in the hope that things continue to progress for others with diabetes, and indeed for those who don't have it too. The level of care given by all the members of staff in the centre from the front desk as you enter, to the nurse who does your 'wee' (!) weight and quick vision test, to the Retinography screening team, the chiropodists, to the registrars and of course the Consultants/Professors is exemplary (And has been for a long long time) The consultant is the most intelligent and charming person I've ever met and is simply delightful. His passion for research into Diabetes and providing the very best care for all the patients seems to be endless. He clearly motivates and enthuses the wonderful team here. Being such a complicated case (medically and emotionally!) I have complete confidence that the team here provide the very best care (which is also complimented by the Doctors at my GP practice) and am very grateful. Thank you very much.
