"What a marvellous bunch they are"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Having sliced off the end of my index finger, my wife rushed me to A & E at QMC on Tuesday 31 May arriving at 6. 30pm. At reception a nurse came across immediately and bandaged my wound to try and slow the bleed. After being checked in I was then seen by another nurse within 30 minutes. I was then sent for an x ray following which, it was determined that the wound could be treated with dressings, although it would take some time for the end of the finger to grow back. I cannot praise enough the level of professionalism shown to me by all 4 nurses/staff that attended to my wound. What a marvellous bunch they are - thank you so much! We eventually left all sorted after only 3 and a half hours - absolutely amazing.
