What People Said

Acute Care @ Home Team: I sincerely believe this service should be extended, it would greatly benefit the NHS. Most senior citizens have a deep fear of hospitals, they believe once they have to enter a hospital late in life, they will never come out again.

Acute Care allows the individual to be treated with compassion and dignity in familiar surroundings and with loved ones.

The young nurses who have delivered my treatment are excellent advocates. They have shown professionalism, compassion, kindness and respect. Please keep this wonderful opportunity available to all in need.

Acute Care @ Home Team: The team were the epitome of competence & compassion. I have nothing but praise for the way they faultlessly delivered my treatment every time. Until the end of 2015 I had little to no experience of the NHS or hospitals. Since then however, I have really been through the mill health wise. I genuinely believe that I would not be alive now where it not for the expertise and compassion the staff all have in spades. Up close and personal is the only way you can experience the wonderful work the staff do.

Heartfelt thanks to everyone involved in my treatment over 2016/17, especially the Acute Care @ Home Team.”

Parkinson's Specialist Nurses: Just want to say a huge thank you for seeing my mum last Friday at Mount Gould.

My sister attended as I had to work that morning and she said how lovely and informative you were. Mum also said you were lovely (she doesn't say that about many healthcare professionals!)

COPD Service: I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank a member of staff, part of the COPD Team for all of their help advice and attention whilst l was feeling so very unwell. I was becoming very distressed which was aggravating my breathing problems. After being taken to Derriford A and E, they arranged a home visit from this member of staff, they sorted out all my medication for COPD explained fully how and when the medication should be used. And talked me through my anxieties. After just a few days my condition improved. To this team of wonderful nurses please pass on my sincere thanks for their invaluable services.
