What I liked

I had an open wound on my elbow which had become infected whilst on holiay . I contacted out of hours doctor who sent me to helston miu. I had a short wait whilst other patients were seen and was kept informed of time scale by the duty nurse. The nurse confirmed the seriousness of my injury and the lethal consequences of being untreated she discussed with me fully the treatement,the medication and dosage and further confirmed it with a consultant at nearby hospital. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her for her care , personality and informative manner.
