"Treatment for my injured foot"

About: St Mary's NHS Treatment Centre

I injured my foot on Thursday evening. I still couldn't walk on Friday morning so I went to the walk in centre. I had a very brief wait before being triagered. I was then assessed by an incredibly kind and competent clinician. The doctor examined my foot, made a diagnosis and sent me for an Xray which confirmed their diagnosis. The doctor then asked about my work and discussed treatment options. The doctor fitted me with a removable cast, gave me some great advice and I was discharged after only an hour or so. The walk in centre was very clean, all the staff were friendly, supportive, calm and very efficient. The great treatment I had means despite my broken foot I will be back at work and Monday. Thank you to everyone - what a great service.
