"Minor injuries"

About: Stoke Mandeville Hospital

(as the patient),

I visted the hospital on Saturday at about 5pm, after splitting my forehead playing rugby. I was seen by one of the nurses within an hour. She was very helpful and caring, after inspecting the cut she cleaned it and stitched the wound.

Given the potential for an unsitely scar she was very careful with the stitching, and currently it is healing well and evenly. I'd like to thank her for the care and skill she took to help me.
