Yesterday, 19/9/14, I visited this department because of a leg injury. I would like to commend all of the staff I encountered, and the care that I received. Although my injury was fairly minor (torn cartilage in knee) , I was treated with professionalism, kindness and courtesy. They ensured that I would be able to manage at home, provided me with equipment to assist, and arranged for a later appointment because my knee was too painful to manipulate. The two doctors, nurses, occupational health therapist, physiotherapist, porters and x Ray staff were all professional, friendly and polite throughout, and I felt that I had received quality care from all. In all, a very positive experience at a very painful stressful time. Thank you.
