"Minor hand injury"

About: Queen Victoria Hospital (East Grinstead)

Anything else?

I recently experienced treatment at the minor injuries clinic, the Margaret Duncombe Ward and a minor surgical operation under local anaesthetic which involved a small skin graft to a deep cut on my finger. Throughout all of this I was consistently impressed by the cheerful professionalism of the staff at all levels in this hospital. Everyone went out of the way to be helpful and considerate. I felt any small concerns and queries I had were taken seriously given a considered response. Even when tired (or tried by the rudeness of another patient), staff remained pleasant attentive and focused. I also witnessed very kind and respectful treatment of more elderly and frail patients.
