"Great little hospital"

About: Caterham Dene Hospital / Minor injuries unit

I broke my toe in December 2014 and was unaware that I could pop in to the Dene for an assessment until my sister in law told me. The very nice receptionist booked me in and explained that I would have to wait until patients with appointments were seen but this only turned out to be about an hour. The nurse x-rayed my toe and confirmed it was broken. The nurse strapped it up and made a further appointment for me at East Surrey. The staff were lovely at this little hospital and the whole process was quick compared to an initial visit in A & E at East Surrey Hospital!
