"My father had been in & out ..."

About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

(as a relative),

What I liked

My father had been in & out of hospital for cancer treatment for approx the last 18 months & during this time he was cared for by some very good nurses.

What could be improved

More staff required, more time dedicated by the doctors / consultants to offer more care to the patients.

A better procedure put in place for the release of a body in the event of someone passing away as we had to wait one week for my dad to be released to the funeral directors due to doctors being off ill & on holiday.
