"Trip to Minor Injuries for deep would"

About: St Bartholomew's Hospital

I visited St Barts Minor injuries until on Tuesday 6th January and after a very friendly encounter with the Receptionist who was lovely, I was seen almost straight away by an excellent Nurse. I had originally been to Minor Injuries in Scotland when I got the bite on Xmas Day in Dunfermline at Queen Margarets Hospital and they were excellent too, but after less than satisfactory follow up with my local GP practice here in London, I was worried that the wound wasn't healing and needed to see someone who could put my mind at rest - I certainly got this from St Barts. The nurse cleaned the wound, gave me lots of advice, dressed it properly for the first time in over a week and was absolutely fantastic. She completely put my mind at rest and was extremely knowledgeable and sympathetic. Fantastic service - really impressed! Thank you.
