"Quick and efficient out of hours care"

About: Wharfedale Hospital

Had infected fingernail, very painful but clearly non urgent, that swelled up over the weekend. Rang 111 who told me I should be seen that weekend within 24 hours. Otley got back to me within half an hour (at 10am) with an appointment at 12. Arrived (free parking as it was a weekend, seemed a big car park but was v quiet as it was a weekend) and was seen at 12 on the dot. Given antibiotics. Very impressed. Have had Otley recommend by lots of mum friends for child bumps and bangs.

Dear Hannah,

Thank you for taking the time to post such positive comments.

I have shared your comments with the Local Care Direct who manage the minor injuries unit and have asked that they share this with their staff members so that they too can know of the good work they are doing.

With kind regards
