After a very deep cat bite on a Friday evening,by Sunday my hand was very hot/red and swollen.I decided to visit A&E Epsom where I was seen by a nurse in 2 hours. The unit didn't seem that busy so goodness know what happens when it is.There were lots of mess on the floor and torn magazines on tables littered with used paper cups and drink cans The nurse was very professional and organized an x ray for possible remains of cats teeth. The hand was disinfected and bandaged along with being prescribed antibiotics.The treatment area was clean and I was on my way within 45 minutes. I'm very happy with my care but such a shame about the wait and condition of waiting room area.
