"Excellent care received from Crawley Urgent Treatment Centre"

About: Crawley Hospital / Urgent treatment centre

(as a parent/guardian),

My grown up son is an electrician and he accidentally cut his thumb badly with a Stanley knife.

I took him to Crawley expecting a tedious long wait, but could not be more delighted with the service we received. The receptionist was very pleasant and we sat and waited. There were a few people waiting.

Nurse Clare Poustie invited Mark to the treatment room and cleaned and applied sutures to the wound. She was professional and very nice and reassuring. She gave sound advice as to how to care for the wound and what to expect. We were in and out within half an hour.

I was especially impressed as I too work for the same Trust and it's very different to be on the receiving end of care.
