I attended the Minor Injuries in August with a wrist injury. This Unit made me feel confident that they actually "listened to me"". It was the first time I had received treatment here as a patient myself, although my son underwent major orthodontic and jaw surgery last year and experienced superior care.
As a nurse I could be more critical than most patients. I know how things should be done, how patients should be treated, and how care should be administered and evaluated. However, I could not have felt more professionally treated and respected. The Out- patient physiotherapy Unit is superb, being efficiently serviced by 2 receptionists whilst the physio team is specific in their treatment regimes.
It is possible I will need surgery to my hand in the near future and I would have no hesitation to have this surgery at the QVH. It is always a good indication of how good a hospital service is if you ask a clinician where they would prefer to be admitted if they needed treatment for themselves or their loved ones.
Well done to all the staff and thank you!
