"visit to urgent care centre"
About: Hexham General Hospital Hexham General Hospital Hexham NE46 1QJ
i can not fault the excellent fast service my husband received when we attended one saturday evening with a one week history of back pain.
we were greated by a very pleasant receptionist who booked us in quickly and told us their would be a short wait to see the Traige nurse.
had not sat down .. when called by a pleasant nurse, my husband was asked several questions about his condition and offered pain relief.
following a short wait (30mins) my husband was seen bythe doctor, who treated my husband professionally and with great knowledge, we left with a prescription to collect from a chemist that evening.
we were seen and treated well withing an acceptable time.
i have no problem recommending the service now provided at Hexham Urgern Care Centre, but some people i have spoken to were unaware it is open at night.
it may be benificial to advertise in the local paper to say you are, i think it is very reasuring to have a 24hr service local to us and it would be a tradgety to loose through lack of use , the new hospital may be very good but it is a great distance from the rural community i live in . the Emergency Department at Hexham is a great loss, and concering to think what else we are going to loose.
