"Wound dressing at the minor injuries clinic"

About: Altrincham General Hospital

Came off my bike and bust my knee. Very impressed with everything about the set up. Friendly receptionists, everywhere very clean, short waiting time (50mins on Wednesday, 5 mins today). Nurse who looked after me was really helpful and professional. They tailored their advice to my needs and capabilities and gave me a couple of dressings to do myself so I did not need to come back unnecessarily. I`ve already highly recommended this unit to my accident prone friends as a better alternative to A&E for minor injuries.
