About: Bristol Royal Infirmary

What I liked

As an American ex-pat living in Bristol, I came to the A&E with a lot of trepidation after hearing all the news reports about the neglect and problems the NHS were experiencing. I was more than pleased with my care at the A&E, the clinic afterward and my surgery the following day. From the A&E doctor, the clinic and ward staff, the surgeons, anethtesist and nurses, most all were professional, curtious and compassionate. Well done, BRI! Thank you.

What could be improved

The only improvement I would offer, would be the wait time for surgery following the stabilization of a fracture.
