"A&E visit"

About: St Helier Hospital

St Helier is my local hospital and I visited due toy son cutting his finger with a sharp knife needing three stitches. Staff facilities great but his finger was injected with a numbing agent with an expiry date of 04.13 ! More than a year out if date! I find this concerning.
