"End of holiday accident"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

On the last day of my visit in London, I managed to fall off an escalator and break a bone in my wrist. The friend I was visiting took me to your emergency room for treatment. Not being a citizen of the UK, I wan't sure what sort of treatment, delays, hassles, etc. to expect. Well, there were no problems! My injury was treated in a timely manner (faster than I could have expected at home) and with great care by the attending staff. I cannot express how kind and helpful everyone was! I hope to never have to avail myself of your services again, but it is comforting to know that this excellent care is available if needed. Since returning home I have told all my friends that if they need emergency care in London they need not be afraid. It could not have been any better.
