"changing of dressings"

About: Weymouth Community Hospital

After having a part of thumb amputation a week ago, I thought bit was about time to get dressings changed due to sweat, general cleanliness and the fact it was another week to my outpatient appointment. I went by chance as I was passing and the desk staff immediately went to find out if it was possible to do this. It was possible and I was removing the old dressing within 10 mins and was re-dressed and out the door within 20 mins. Very good service, much appreciated ?
