I would like to thank and praise the endoscopy department, for the excellent service I recieved on Thursday. Arriving very apprehensive the staff were emphatic and took all those apprehension away, I can’t say it was an enjoyable experience, but the members of your team made as pleasurable as possible. Thank you

Had an emergency visit Saturday pm and I can’t fault any of the staff. From paramedics Evie and Lauren to JJ and Dan in the ED dept and Theresa on Ilchester ward. They all made me feel safe and secure . A big thank you to you all and your teams for all you did to make me feel comfortable and cared for.

I would really like to thank CT staff James and Ciara. They were marvellous, kind, empathetic and made the dreaded scan, easy, comfortable and as l am physically disabled, they offered any help that was required. I cannot thank them enough. They are the NHS at its best

Brilliant NHS hospital and staff. I dislike the car parking, it should be free for patients and staff, although staff would be better in an out of town car park with a minibus service in as patients need to be close to the services they are attending and often there is no space at all to Park.

Various visits for appointments etc. Overall I would give the hospital an excellent rating. The staff are really helpful and usually run to time. If they are running late they are quick to tell you. Parking is rarely easy and, like most a&e departments, there always seems to be a long wait if you have to go for an emergency.
