"Treatment of son who had cut his leg on a fence"

About: Newton Abbot Hospital

We visited the unit at 9.30pm and were seen straight away. The MIU Practioner was exceptionally diligent in their cleanliness, ensuring all equipment and their hands were clean. The Practioner did very effcetive bandaging and sealing of the wound, and was also good with my son. The hospital was very clean and tidy. We left quite quickly after being seen.
