"Treatment for dog bite"

Unsure if I needed hospital treatment for a dog bite, I was reassured by the receptionist that a nurse would be able to examine the wound in good time.

I immediately drove to the hospital and was seen by the on duty nurse, within 20 minutes, had an X ray at very short notice, had the wound dressed and antibiotics prescribed within an hour or so. I was very pleased with the prompt treatment as the wound was infected,

The receptionist and the duty nurse could not have been more pleasant and helpful and I am indebted to them for the prompt response and treatment. Now well on the way to recovery thanks to both.
