About: Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital (Wonford)

(as the patient),

What I liked

A&E staff were fantastic and dealt my considerable pain. All very friendly and helped ease my nervousness and worry.

What could be improved

More staff on wards. Despite asking for pain killers when I was in agony, I waited for over an hour. When the Dr did finally arrive, I was told I was stupid for waiting so long before asking for pain relief!!
