What People Said

Out of Hours District Nursing Team: I wish to thank from the bottom of my heart the nurse and care worker who attended my wife on 20 December and were instrumental in getting her into hospital. You were both fantastic and gave care, consideration and compassion to my wife and I. You were a credit to your profession (you were angels). Thank you very much.

Family Nurse Partnership: Thanks for everything, it's been a pleasure to work with you all.

Acute Care at Home team: All the nurses gave me excellent care and support.. they were great, very friendly, caring people. All I would like to say is they are very lovely, caring, busy people who no matter what take time to listen as well as do their job. Fantadtic people, great service!

Acute Care at Home team

We were both completely at ease with all the nurses who visited us and we had complete confidence in the team – we would feel that any of our friends and family would be completely safe. This experience has made us very aware of the care and compassion and friendliness shown to us both. This has made a difficult situation so easy to deal with and we will miss them all.. with grateful thanks.

Recovery at Home team: I have recently had my hip replacement revision at Derriford - my third. The staff on Stannon ward were excellent.

Due to complications I was unable to commence physio before my allotted five days on the ward but a fantastic new system has recently been started called Recovery at Home.

Nurses, physiotherapists, health care assistants and occupational therapists visited me at my daughter's home. The staff were all amazing, caring professionals. Nothing was too much trouble for them.

Our National Health Service is amazing and I feel very thankful that there are so many wonderful people willing to go the extra mile.
