The made a tentative diagnosis involving me throughout in their own thought processes and proceeded to treat me in an expert manner.My wound was dressed,I was given verbal after-care advise and prescribed a seven day course of anti-biotic capsules.I felt throughout in very capable hands and the nurse practitioner was extremely professional at all stages.
