"5 star treatment"

About: St Mary's Hospital

Visited A & E on Sunday 10th May 2015 with our 18 month old grandson who had hurt his arm whilst holidaying on the island. On arrival Oliver was in pain and not moving his arm we were seen very quickly by triage who came and reviewed him in the waiting area which saved him the pain of being moved, the member of staff also involved our other grandson 3 which was a nice touch. We were assured that we would be seen quite quickly which turned out to be only 15 minute wait - within minutes of manipulation for a pulled elbow oliver was happy and using his arm to throw his toys around - a big thank you to the care and speed of treatment at st marys and as always a big thumbs up for the great NHS - we left hospital 50 minutes after arriving to continue our holiday and visit the local fish and chip shop for supper.
