"A&E Department"

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

Went in on Friday day time after injuring myself while gardening on Thursday .i wasn't going to go as i didn't want to be sat in a& e all day .

i was extremely happy with the service. within 10 mins of getting a seat i was called and someone examined my hand , 20 mins after that i got an x-ray and 10 mins after that got called again and told i had broken my finger. it was then cleaned and wrapped up . new appointments were made. the nurse was extremely polite. all in all i was in and out in just over 1 hour the only negative id have is the god awful wallpaper in the new waiting room .. haha if i wasnt sick before i would be staring at that .. :) amazing service .
