We recently moved to dorset and unfortunately had to attend Dorchester A&E department on Thursday with our 2 yr old son who fell off a chair and broke his arm. We were seen within 10 mins of entering the department, assessed by a very competent nurse practitioner and made to feel at ease at a very emotional time. The student nurses were friendly and polite, a credit to the university. My son was x-Ray and put in a cast and within 1 1/2 hrs we were on a ward awaiting surgery. The service, care and attitudes and professionalism of all the staff we delt with was exemplary. A true reflection of the NHS at it's best Thank you
