"Minor injury unit"

About: Totnes Hospital

My daughter was suffering from an infected foot having just returned from travels which become hot and taut over night. The staff were excellent on a BH weekend. She was treated, had a dressing and poultice plus antibiotics with sound advice. A much better solution than clogging up the A&E in Torbay.
