I had to attend the new minor injuries clinic at the Queen Elizabeth hospital today after being referred there by NHS 24.
I sustained a chemical burn and was concerned id have to attend A&E where at a time like this made me incredibly nervous.
Instead I was told I could attend the new minor injuries unit. I have never felt as at ease as I did there.
The 3 nurses (1 physio, 1nurse and 1student) provided a whole new level of care. They weren’t rushed as they would be in a busy A&E environment. They had the time to have a proper conversation, put me at ease and made me feel like they genuinely cared. We even had a joke and a laugh. The nurses said themselves it’s a better experience for them too. Let’s help the nurses/doctors and keep life easier for them!
I hope they keep the new unit open for good and not just until Covid 19 ends.
