"Very professional but with a personal touch"

About: Barnsley PCT / Tissue viability service

(as the patient),

I received treatment for leg ulcers and lymphoedema. Lynn and Sue could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Very professional but with a personal touch.

The venue at Worsborough Health Centre was excellent for access with a wheelchair although no accessible parking space were available at my 2 visits. Fire extinguishers were placed in awkward places near doors making steering very difficult, I mentioned it at the time.

Many thanks for taking the time to let us know your thoughts about the Tissue Viability Service. I will ensure that Lynn and Sue are made aware of your positive comments.

I will pass on your comments regarding internal wheelchair access to the Facilities Manager of the Worsborough site.
