"Broken arm"

About: Abingdon Community Hospital

I came to the A and E at approximately 9.45 pm last Saturday 9th July.

All the staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly, luckily there weren't too many people waiting so I was seen pretty quickly.

From the Reception staff to the nursing staff particularly the paramedic, all very pleasant and helpful.

As I couldn't have an x ray that evening they said to come back at 11 am next day (Sunday) for an Xray which I did,and once again all the staff very pleasant.

This is what happens when it is a small hospital, more personal than the huge ones, which can be daunting.

Anyway, all in all not a scary experience at all but it was made much less stressful by all the staff being so caring. Thanks again.
