"Only go as a last resort!"

About: Fryatt Hospital & Mayflower Medical Centre (harwich)

What I liked

Attended minor injuries department with daughter. Nurse did not know what a normal temperature for a teenager is, then told her swollen hand was not a minor injury and to call an out of hours doctor. Doctor referred back to Fryatt who then diagnosed as cyst. As we had no faith in the medical staff we saw, we took daughter to our own doctor who referred us for x-ray as possible fracture/dislocation.

What is the point of this hospital?

What could be improved

Better trained medical staff.
