"Treatment for cycling accident at Barnet General..."

About: Barnet General Hospital

Just want to say thank you for the excellent care I received from Barnet General A&E when I came off my bike on Sunday (7 Sept). From the paramedics on site, who got me efficiently and carefully into the ambulance and back to the hospital, to the guys who gave me a (thankfully clear) CT scan and a whole range of x-rays, to the orthopaedic surgeon who took a look at my arm, everyone was calm, knowledgeable and professional, and showed good humour even when I was continually complaining about how uncomfortable the head brace was. Every precaution was taken, but they were understanding and sympathetic at every step. I'd particularly like to say thank you to the nursing team, and the orthopaedic trauma surgeon. But there were others who also deserve thanks.
