"Visited minor njuries"

My right arm was aching very, very badly. I was unsure if I had injured my arm for I could not recall anything I had done but having limited mobility knew I may well ave done. The nurse/sister greeted me in a very pleasant way. Listened carefully while I explained the problem and then examined my arm and after the examination they believed it was to do with the tendons. They put a splint on and because I have a very skinny wrist I fell between two sizes and because the nurse did not want the splint to hurt my arm they placed a stockinette bandage on first. They gave me lots of advice for helping the tendons to heal. The nurse/sister was spot on and within a week and following their excellent advice, my arm was fine again. I was very impressed at the way they gave such good advice, their friendly manner and professionalism. I had had a sleepless night with the aching/pain the night before I went to see them and felt quite on edge, but they soon put me at ease and reassured me. I would like to thank the nurse very much.
