"This is the address every parent should know!"

About: Princess of Wales Hospital

Very helpful when an injury seems to be too minor to go to A&E yet urgent enough to wait till the next available appointment with your local GP practice. I took my 4y.o wiht a splinter in his hand and he was seen immediately. The nurse was very efficient and friendly. And there was no any form-filing or other bureaucratic procedures as all the information about my son had already been in their data base and I only had to tell them the name. I now have the address pined up above my desk, just in case. Many thanks!
