"A burnt foot handled swiftly and carefully"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

A lapse of awareness led to me stepping on sand that had recently had a disposable BBQ on it causing a big burn on my bare foot. I attended the A&E at this hospital and received exceptionally professional and timely care. I recall that the staff I had the most dealing with were were very knowledgable in their field and ensured that I was in the most comfort possible given my condition while also attending to a large number of sport related injuries that appeared to take place that day. I would really like to thank them and all the staff for making an extremely painful, not to mention pride denting, incident end very well, the pain was managed swiftly and treatment administered and I was able to get a good nights sleep and make a swift recovery. I am very grateful there are kind giving carers like this in the world, thank you so much.
