"Excellent Minor Injuries Unit"

About: Altrincham General Hospital

Not the first time I have used this service for myself or accompanying friends and always been impressed with the set up, but this was the first time in the new building which is a clean, well equipped and designed space. I was initially seen, had X Rays, reassessed and given a plaster cast all very quickly and efficiently. I was given clear and helpful information at every stage from all staff members I interacted with, everyone was very polite, friendly and professional. They arranged a follow up appointment in a really helpful and convenient manner. As an NHS employee myself, I think this an example of a great service that takes pressure off A&E units. I recommend to friends/work colleagues/sport teammates with minor injuries.
