"Minor injuries unit visit following a nasty fall"

About: Chard Hospital

Having looked online for hours of opening and finding that info given was that each day's closure was at 15.00 I decided to take a chance and phoned. Seemingly the hours are 8.30-20.30 daily NOT as on the website! Once there the friendly atmosphere put me at my ease as I had an injury to my mouth from falling forward heavily. I was dealt with in turn but kept well-informed of the procedure. I was"patched up" and given lots of info as how to continue the treatment. The nurse in charge was very experienced. I find this service absolutely invaluable in our locality and no reason to drive 17+ miles to the larger A&Es in Yeovil and Taunton. Long may it continue! Please correct your website.
