"visit to minor injuries unit"

About: Newton Abbot Hospital

The waiting area is ' soul less' but compensated by the cafe area very close to hand, and was able to enjoy a lite bite and pot o tea whilst waiting to be called.This was a wait of one and half hour wait ,which was reasonable.However no complaint of the treatment given but it was obvious that it was 'rushed' ,as it turned out was to meet government waiting time targets and felt like it.
