"Recent referral to Eye Clinic"
About: North Devon District Hospital North Devon District Hospital Barnstaple EX31 4JB
This was our first experience of North Devon hospital and we were dreading attending as an urgent referral after hearing about the consequences of current staff shortages /
NHS cuts - particularly on a Friday.
The eye department was very busy and I must complement all the medical staff for the professional, helpful and well organised way that they all worked together.
Although very busy and clearly working long hours they were polite and thorough in their investigations. It was reassuring to see that the junior doctors felt comfortable in referring to the consultants for advice and that the consultants were happy to engage in this process.
This was all repeated again on the Monday.
All follow up appointments were arranged as promised.
