"Above and beyond at the Pilgrim"

About: Pilgrim Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a relative),

My wife had been suffering from an abdominal pain and we felt we would have it checked out at A&E. Our turn came and she was examined, the results from the initial tests were inconclusive so further tests were required, the doctor who was attending us was coming to the end of his shift but the results had not come back, he waited for over an hour after his shift finished for the results which meant he was able to diagnose her illness (we later found out he had to travel to Manchester after the shift). His dedication speaks wonders for the profession and the Trust, thank you.
