"Brilliant treatment at A&E"

About: Horton General Hospital

Anything else?

I had an accident involving a chainsaw and my leg resulting in a deep laceration and consequently needed to go to A&E at the HGH. I was almost immediately seen by a nursing sister who for the next two or three hours together with various assistants and a doctor, sorted out my problem and sent me on my way. During the time I was there they were highly professional, courteous helpful and engaging. Subsequent visits to the trauma clinic and my GP's surgery left me fully fit, healed and delighted with my treatment. All concerned were a credit to themselves, their profession and the NHS. Thank-you all.
