"I cut my head open. Phoned the ..."

About: Haslemere Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked:

I cut my head open. Phoned the local doctor in Headley Village - who suggested that Haslemere may have a small injuries clinic - but they had no phone number for them - USELESS.

So found number for them - but it went to answerphone - not really good enough.

However - I drove to the hospital. I was seen immediately and assessed. I walked out 10 minutes later - head wound cleaned and glued up. SUPERB service. Everyone was extremely polite and friendly and very efficient at their jobs. Hospital was clean and very well organised.

After living in London and experiencing their hospitals first hand - this is on a different planet - well done Haslemere.,Your web site mentions nothing about there being a minor injuries clinic? Why? This is crucial information - and saved me a long drive to Guildford - and saved me bothering an A&E department - for what was a minor injury.

Simply poor information on this site.

What could be improved? Hospital improvements? none!
