"Fantastic care at Tiverton Hospital"

About: Tiverton and District Hospital / General surgery Tiverton and District Hospital / Minor injury unit

(as the patient),

I recent went to Tiverton Hospital on two successive days, firstly to have an operation to remove a basal cell carcinoma, and then to be treated for a nasty cut at the minor injury unit.

On both occasions things were absolutely fantastic, what an amazing hospital. Everybody was fantastic, and was not kept waiting at all. Dr Lawn, the skins specialist who treated me, was wonderful, as were the nurses and receptionists. Ditto for the two women who treated me at the minor injury unit. Everything was similarly good when I went back to have my stitches taken out and dressings changed.

Nothing to improve in my opinion.
