"Sprained ankle requiring XRays"

About: Abingdon Community Hospital

I would like to thank the nurses who looked after me yesterday.

I was pleased to see that the waiting time was only over one hour. In Oxford, one can easily tripple that figure...

I was being dealt with, efficiently and professionally. I even received some smiles, which is always appreciated in those circumstances

The only place for improvement would be the ladies/gentlemen toilet in the waiting room...

Thank you overall

I do hope your ankle is feeling better and many thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback in regards to your visit. It is always helpful to hear what is working well but also about what we can do better. Following other responses in regard to waiting times in the Minor Injuries Units across Oxfordshire the service are making waiting times available via Twitter. Whilst not all people will be able to use Twitter it is one small step to improving communications so that people are informed about the service and waiting times. We are exploring other ways to help with this. Mandy. Patient Experience and Involvement Lead.
