About: Altrincham General Hospital

I attended Altrincham minor injuries unit on Monday 16th May 8 a.m. after falling down a flight of stairs and injuring my foot.

I was attended to by a very caring nurse had an x-ray and was treated and on my way home by 9.20a.m.

I had broken my toe and ripped the nail form the nail bed.

The bleeding hadn't stopped by early evening and I telephoned the department.

The nurse told me to return and they changed the dressing again very caring.

I returned today to have dressing changed and once again attended to by another lovely caring nurse who's name I didn't get.

I am to return to see a doctor on Tuesday.

I'm sure the good care will continue.

I would like to thank everyone concerned.
