"Smooth as silk at A&E, Grantham"

I hurt my finger at work, but thought it was just bruised, so took no action. Two weeks later, it had virtually healed when it took a gentle knock. It hurt out of all proportion to the severity of the blow it had taken, and started swelling up. So, I was advised by my local (Melton Mowbray) walk-in centre to visit an A&E department to have it checked out.
Apart from the rather high parking charge, everything about Grantham deserves praise. I was with a Doctor within an hour, another ten minutes and my finger was X-rayed, a further ten minutes and the Doctor was telling me it appeared to be broken. Strapping was applied, and an appointment made for a couple of days later to see a consultant. 1-2-3: everything was so efficient, it ran as smooth as silk. Every member of staff couldn't have been more helpful, especially when we got lost in the hospital itself.
No-one wants to go to hospital, but if you have to go, I would 100% recommend Grantham. Thanks to all there for sorting me out so well, and letting me get on with the business of earning money. (I'm married, you see)
