"Repercussions of falling through a shed roof!"

Anything else?

My husband had been clearing our shed roof of leaves and general gunk after the storms - a job he has done on several occasions, but on this one he was less careful where he put his weight and the consequence of this is a man-sized hole in the roof shed and the need of attention at Petersfield Hospital. As it is 29th December, that awkward time between Christmas and New Year we phoned ahead to check that they would be open. They were. My husband had cut his head in three places and gashed his shin. As we walked into the Minor Injuries Unit we were met with no queue, a huge smile from the nurse and the question "are you the gentleman who rang earlier?" We arrived at 4.32pm and after filling in our form went straight in to the nurse who was kind, attentive, informative and absolutely first rate. We left at 5.15pm - fantastic. So thank you very much indeed for providing a wonderful, efficient, caring, speedy service. Absolutely first rate. I really think that more people need to know about the services you provide - a trip to Petersfield, or Haslemere (5 days a week) is so preferable to going to A&E at Guildford - thank you so so much.
