"Swift treatment in the urgent care centre"

About: Chase Farm Hospital

I never felt that it was a good idea to scrap the A&E services at Chase Farm Hospital and I am pleased that at least still retains the Urgent Care Centre. I had to visit around mid day during the week as I had cut my hand open on a glass that broke while washing up. I was in and out within an hour and a half which I thought was excellent. Within that time I had an x-ray, stitches, a bandage and collected a prescription from the pharmacy! My hand was bleeding very heavily and luckily I was able to get a lift to Chase Farm as I could not drive, but had the urgent care centre not been there I would have had to travel to North Middlesex hospital which would have taken longer and would have meant I was left bleeding for longer. I have heard rumours that the Urgent Care Centre will be closed, which I must say would, in my opinion, be a bad idea. Staff were nice as well.
