"Speedy and efficient treatment"

About: Burnham on Sea War Memorial Hospital

After receiving an injury to my hand involving heavy bleeding I was seen within a very short space of time by a Nurse that showed utmost respect and friendliness and treated the wound quickly and effectively. The reception staff were also friendly and efficient. The wound required 2 further visits and on each occasion I was treated extremely well by the Reception and Nursing staff. I have no doubt that this Hospital provides extremely good service to the local inhabitants and visitors alike. They helped turn a traumatic experience into a totally acceptable one with their politeness and efficiency. The treatment rooms and communal areas were light and very clean adding a high degree of confidence for patients.
