"Great staff and excellent service"

About: Barnsley Hospital / Accident and emergency Barnsley Hospital / Oral surgery

(as the patient),

After an accident where I cut my lip open today, I had to go to Barnsley's A&E department. Although it was busy, I was still seen by an assessment doctor in 1 hour. After this, another doctor saw me 30 mins later who referred me to the oral department to have my lip stitched closed.

In the oral department, we waited 40 minutes to see the surgeon who was very friendly and efficient. The nurse also made me feel at ease.

Overall I would like to thank the staff that I saw at Barnsley hospital for their efficiency and their friendly manner. I could not find anywhere inside the hospital to write my comments down so I thought I would do it online.
