NHS at its best!
We visited the minor injuries unit for my daughter's suspected broken finger. We had quite a long wait (3 hours), but had friendly, helpful communication from the receptionist team.
My daughter received wonderful care from the all the nurses and x-ray staff she saw - kind, smiley, and really professional and thorough.
One problem with the service (no fault of the staff involved! ) is having the x-ray open for shorter hours than the MI unit. We waited for 3 hours, and were seen just 10 minutes after the x-ray closed, meaning we had to return the next day for an x-ray and results, which took another hour and a half. This must make life really tricky for people without transport.
All in all, we were really impressed with the care we received. Thank you to the team!
