"A&E visit Thursday 3rd October 2013"

About: St Helier Hospital

Anything else?

Arrived at St Helier at 7pm with my 13 year old son who had hurt his wrist. Signed in at reception and directed straight away to children's A&E. On arrival seen quickly by triage nurse who spoke directly to my son. Shortly thereafter given X-ray form. On arrival at X-ray department seen immediately and X-rays taken. Back to children's A&E where we had a fairly short wait to see a doctor who diagnosed a broken wrist. Through to treatment area where A&E nurse applied back slab cast, information leaflet given. Back to reception to make appointment for fracture clinic. From arrival to discharge 2 hours. Very impressed with service and treatment received. Must keep this A&E department open. Best in the area.
