"Thank you for caring"

About: Charing Cross Hospital

Having cut the top of my head badly by bobbing up under an open cupboard door (it had a metal edge) and with no one to help I went to A&E for assistance. I arrive at 4.15pm and was seen by a doctor at around 4.25. Then, no more than fifteen minutes later, I was having the cut dressed by a nurse. I can’t praise the place or the staff highly enough. The premises were immaculate with modern, comfortable, chairs and clean toilets. The staff couldn’t have been more caring and attentive. The nurse who dealt with dressing the cut (unfortunately I didn’t get their name), hearing that I lived alone, even rang me at ten o’clock that evening to make sure I’d suffered no further symptoms. My thanks go to all the staff there - you’re terrific!
