"A real eye-opener, clean, friendly and..."

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

What I liked

I have had several appointments recently at RD&E Hospital and have been very impressed by what appears to have been a complete transformation and overhaul of the Hospital Systems. Being an ex soldier, I always arrive early for my appointment, but always bring something to read, expecting a very long wait to be seen. At my last two appointments I was seen literally within ten minutes of arriving. I was sent to various departments for blood tests, and heart tracing etc and again was seen very quickly. The Staff are informative, friendly and smile readily despite the huge amount of pressure they must be under with cutbacks by successive Governments.

I would recommend this Hospital to anyone.

What could be improved

The only thing I was unable to find out was when my operation was going to be done despite phoning my Consultants' Secretary, hopefully the wait will not be too long.
