"Very Impressive Weekend service"

About: Witney Community Hospital

Very impressed.

Called the NHS line with bad kidney pains at 6.50pm on a Saturday afternoon to be told I need to go straight to Witney Minor Injuries. They made an appointment for me for 7.10pm. The staff were expecting me on arrival and I went straight in to see a doctor. The doctor gave me a through examination and even called the John Radcliffe to see if I needed to go straight there for a scan.

Luckily I did not.

They suggested I called my doctor on the Monday as I needed further treatment.

My doctor actually called me Monday am and had received all the notes from the Minor Injuries already.

I have since had a scan, seen a specialist and have further appointments booked for the 20th November.

All completed in less than 6 weeks! Exemplary services all round.

Always great to hear such positive feedback, thank you! Our out of hours medical service can be found in the same location as our minor injury unit and works closely with 111 to provide the best possible care. I'll be sure to pass your thanks onto the Witney team and once again, thank you for taking the time get in touch. John
