"Excellent service"

About: Leeds General Infirmary

I received an excellent service yesterday in the Minor Injuries unit at LGI. In particular a nurse was excellent. After some confusion at my GP with booking me in for an ultrasound on my leg before I go on holiday next week, I was left with no other choice than to turn up at A&E. After an extremely long week in work and big concerns about my leg which keeps swelling up, I was tired, frustrated and very worried. The nurse was great, and managed to get a doctor to look at it speedily, and got me booked in for an ultrasound on Monday.  The nurse's manner and professionalism was great, whilst being extremely friendly and reassuring. This nurse and the rest of the staff deserve a lot of recognition for the work they do. Thanks for the great service!

Response from Leeds General Infirmary

Dear Esther, Thank you for taking the time to write to us. It was very uplifting and gratifying to read your post. I have passed your comments on to the Matron and Head of nursing for the minor injuries department at Leeds General Infirmary and have asked that they share it with their staff members, who I know will be extremely happy to know that they are providing the best possible care and that is meeting our patient’s expectations. With Kind regards Rosie Senior Nurse Patient Experience
