"Minor injuries unit"

My wife fell on rocks adjoining Burgh Island. As she could walk we were referred to the drop in centre. She had sustained a nasty cut on the bridge of her nose and after registering she was treated promptly by the nurse. I had fallen a couple of days previously and hurt my hand so asked if they could take a look whilst I was there. I was xrayed almost straight away and it was discovered I had broken a metacarpel bone which was strapped and given advice on treatment when at home as we were enroute. Admittedly they were relatively quiet but we were both dealt with inside 1.5 hrs. Amazing service!
