"A&E and SSU unit"

About: Salford Royal

On Saturday the 30th April 2016 I visited A&E department with an abcess in a private ladies part.

First how exceptionally helpful and kind were all the staff in the department, couldn't have asked for better service and attention.

after A&E I was transferred to SSU, the doctor introduced themself to me and really put me at ease (deep down I was terrified)

They wanted to book me into theatre for the following day but having a disabled husband I didn't want a GA and stay in overnight for obvious reasons.

They happily did what I asked and gave me a local and did the minor op there and then and was asking all the time and their partner was I ok and chatting to me to put me at ease.

It took about 20mins to do and then

I was off home with antibiotics and instruction on how to manage my wound.

how wonderful is the doctor and their team where on earth do you get treatment like that .

Only at Salford Royal Hospital, what a wonderful place.

Let no one call the NHS to me they all do a wonderful job
