"Attended A and E on GP instructions"

About: The Royal London Hospital

I had foot surgery several weeks ago, and attended my GP today to have the sutures removed and the dressings changed.

My GP was not happy with the look of the wounds and sent me to the Royal London.

I was seen very quickly (it was not so busy at that time), and I wanted to say a big thanks to the nurse and the three doctors who attended to me.

Three orthopedic specialists (one of whom was a trainee doctor), took a great deal of time and care to help me.

They were incredibly careful and amazingly polite, and took time to explain things to me and give me valuable advice.

Thanks very much for your help and care.

All the best to all of you.
