"An excellent experience"

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

What I liked

The facilities and service are excellent both at RD&E main hospital in Exeter and the new Tiverton Hospital. Parking is not a problem with park and ride at the main hospital and ample parking at Tiverton. Waiting times for Xrays and treatment are minimal and in pleasant and clean surroundings with friendly staff.

The Consultant listens to all your concerns and answers any questions straightforwardly in a pleasant and reassuring manner as well as having great professional skill and knowledge. I always look forward to my visit to either of these hospitals which reminds me how great our NHS really is.

Nothing is perfect but these rheumatology departments come pretty close. When I first attended I was in severe pain and almost totally disabled. Now with the medications prescribed and after other treatment and procedures my life is almost back to normal with the minimum of aches and pains. There is much more than just an element of luck in this. Teamwork, organisation and above all - caring

What could be improved

Can not find fault with anything yet

Anything else?

I would like to know the origin of the canteen liver
