"Great response at wishaw General a&e"

About: Wishaw General Hospital / Emergency department

(as a parent/guardian),

Our son (age2) fell and burst his chin in the park. It was a pretty deep gash even after cleaning it up and stopping the bleeding so we nipped up in the car. We were seen within 5 minutes triage nurse advised it would need some glue and steri strips ... We thought we'd be sent back to the waiting area but the nurse cleaned the wound and glued and stripped it right there we were in and out in 20 mins. Thank you guys

Dear Marc Howard,

Thank you for taking the time to post the positive comments about your experience while attending the Emergency department, especially at what must have been a frightening time for you and your child.

We are always pleased to receive feedback and I will pass this on to the staff concerned.

I hope your son is making a good recovery.

Best wishes.
