"Very Impressed"

Turned up at 8:20am with a swollen jaw due to a dental abscess (and couldn't get appointment with dentist for a couple of days at earliest). - The place was very clean, only a few people were waiting before me.

Receptionist was friendly, efficient and helpful.

By 8:40am I had been assessed by a doctor (who was also friendly and efficient) and had the prescription I needed. - I'm very grateful to have access to this service.
