"Incredible staff!"

About: Torbay Hospital

My then 17 week old daughter was admitted via the assessment unit on Louisa Carey back in March, since then we have visited the ward at least four times a week to change her dressings. The staff have been absolutely incredible, the assessment unit was a godsend - if we had had to go to A&E every time things went wrong, it would have added hugely to an already stressful time. I cannot thank them enough. Incredible people.
