"Getting Head Stitched Up in A&E"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

I was stupid enough to fall over in Manchester city centre yesterday and went to MRI A&E to get my head wound stitched up.

All the staff were excellent.

They were evidently under huge pressure with a full waiting room.

Okay, I had to wait a long time, but the doctor who eventually stitched me up was brilliant. Thank you.
