"Excellent care after my accident"

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford) / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a service user),

Excellent care after my accident

Surgeon – Brilliant

Nurses – wonderful, very caring and took time to explain everything

Junior Doctors – Excellent, but work far too many hours!


Very difficult to tell who is who amongst the staff  all wear uniforms that look like pyjamas! Please get your nurses back to wearing proper nursing uniforms so we can tell who is a nurse
