"stitches in knee"

About: Exmouth Hospital

I would like to say a big thank you to the staff who were working this evening 18 May. My daughter had a bad cut to her knee when she fell over whilst running on gravel. The doctor was able to stitch it immediately once it had been assessed and cleaned, and they discussed the procedure with us. My daughter is extremely grateful for all your care, and we couldn't have wished for a better service. The NHS staff are wonderful.
