About: Andover War Memorial Hospital

I had a very bad accident at work last November, i git my had caught in a machine at work and I flattened 3 fingers in between two steel rollers and partially amputated One..even tho it wasn't a minor injuries my boss insisted taking me to minor injuries. But due to there quick thinking and very good work i managed to keep my fingers. After surgery I had to have Two more tops amputated but their work at Andover saved having to loose all of the fingers..owe them so much...Thankyou very Much....Kev
