"Highly Recommended, many thanks"

About: Pilgrim Hospital

Anything else?

I've recently returned home after a few days in Pilgrim Hospital and wanted to express my thanks to all the staff who looked after me.

I had previously heard poor reports of Pilgrim and was in all honesty more than a little nervous when I arrived. My fears were soon put to rest after Doctors and nurses explained what would be happening regarding my proceedure and the place was very clean.

A special thank-you to to one of the doctors who went out of her way to ensure I was comfortable. She spoke to me at length and explained everything in such a way that I understood what would be happening.

If more Doctors were like her the world would be a much better place!

A big thank-you to Pilgrim Hospital

I am sorry that you came to us with anxieties following poor reports and your experience demonstrates the huge amount of work that has been achieved at Pilgrim with excellent recent reports from the CQC and a whole host of developments and care achievements over the last 2 years.
