"Super efficient MIU"

About: Caterham Dene Hospital / Rapid assessment clinic

Attended late on Sunday afternoon with a severe reaction to an insect bite. I was seen almost immediately & was in & out within 40 minutes. Wound dressed, given antibiotics & given advice on how to treat it. Removed the dressing when they advised & as I was still concerned re-attended late afternoon on Tuesday. Yet more very clear & concise advice & the wound re-dressed. Thank you

Dear Brian Stevens,

Thanks for posting your story about Caterham Dene Hospital. Caterham is actually run by our colleagues at First Community Health and Care (www.firstcommunitysurrey.com) so we need to get your story moved to their PO site. However I'm sure they will be delighted to read your story and it illustrates the importance of having a range of services available to patients so that everyone can be looked after in the best setting for them.

Kind regards
