"Care recieved on 7.04.15"

The care I received was extremely good and even though they were posting times of 3 to 4 hours to be seen I was clear from the treatment in approx. 25mins. I attended with a dog bite at 20.45 on the Tuesday night to my left hand, this was seen and assessed advised on treatment and then treated . My hand was cleaned up and bandaged followed by advice on an injection, tetanus, was then given and the hand bandaged I then was given a prescription to collect and informed of any signs to watch for in case the treatment was not successful. The whole visit was very gratifying and the staff exceptional.
