"Arrived at A & E with 2 crushed ..."

About: Royal Lancaster Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

Arrived at A & E with 2 crushed fingers - taken into assessment within minutes.Taken to X Ray within 5 minutes x rays taken.Then back for preparation - The doctor operated on fingers along with a nurse - absolutely fantastic - very competent - quick and efficient - had complete confidence in them both.Felt very lucky and grateful that I was under their care and expertise.I am not a good patient or brave and the nurse calmed me and really looked after me. They looked after me from start to finish that day - truly wonderful care.
