"Good care at Torbay and Derriford Hospitals"

About: Derriford Hospital / General surgery Torbay Hospital / Urology

(as the patient),

I would like to say that I had a very good experience of having my MRI scan in the mobile unit at Derriford Hospital. All the staff were very lovely and made the whole experience very relaxing for me.

Although I was pleased that it wasn't raining as the waiting room was inside however the mobile unit is outside. Hopefully we can now find out what the problem is that is causing me my neck pain?

I have also been in and out of the local hospitals a number of times as I have prostate cancer. I would like to thank both Dr Pascoe the oncologist at Derriford and Dr Lydon the oncologist at Torbay.

I was also particularly impressed with the after-care service I received from Dr Lydon at Torbay as they called me up to check I was okay. I now attend every six months for check-ups after being diagnosed two and a half years ago.
