"Doctor seen in less tham 5 minutes!"

About: Purley War Memorial Hospital

I was bitten by an insect whilst on a walk, and despite taking the usual allergy relief, the bite swelled up, throbbed and itched. I decided to see whether Purley could help - early evening on Saturday. I couldn't believe my luck when I arrived to find empty, spacious rooms and a doctor available immediately. It took longer for the supermarket chemist to dispense the antibiotics than it took to give the hospital my details,consult with the doctor and be on my way! My only complaint is that I paid for an hour's parking but wasted 55 minutes of it!! This is excellent service.
