"Acute care unit"

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

Very happy with nursing hospital, but feel pushed out at a busy period on Friday evening, prior to Bank Holiday weekend. Still feel very unwell. No complaints re nurses who are lovely, but not given explanation/ follow up, as to why I was discharged, still feeling unwell. Exeter hospital as a whole, have been exremely good with my care in the past, and would be a shame if excellent standards of care were to decline, due to budgetary constraints.
