"Fabulous!"

About: Queen Victoria Hospital (East Grinstead)

After going to A&E in South West London a week ago after being hit in the face with a hockey stick during a game they put stitches up. I went back to GP to get stitches removed and complained about jaw pain. The GP was shocked that originally i was not Xrayed in A&E. At 6pm yesterday my GP rang and got me an appointment at Maxillofacial trauma uni for 10.30am the next day. I was in and out of Queen Victoria Hospital within an hour! This included having X Rays, seeing a dentist and doctor! There was a bit of delay when i arrived as trauma doctor had been called to trauma incident. The receptionist constantly kept us up to date on waiting time and was so friendly! The waiting room was pleasant and the doctors were so friendly and polite. Cannot fault this hospital and if i ever have an emergency i would make the trip here!
