I suffered an Achilles rupture in March which required surgery. From the first late night visit to A&E to yesterday's final physio visit I've been very happy and impressed with the level of care and attention I've been given throughout the different departments in Exeter. I was quickly referred to a doctor who operated the following day and they were excellent. The team in the Capener and Durbin Wards were superb - could not have hoped for more especially realising how busy they all were. Anaesthetics were brilliant (from what I remember!), and even recall sharing a joke or 2 with the recovery nurses. Physio appointments have all been fantastic and I cannot thank the team enough for getting me back on my feet. There are obviously many behind the scenes / admin teams all working together as a very slick unit and everyone I came into contact with has been friendly and very professional. Overall very pleased - you're a real credit to the NHS. Thank you!
