"Great care"

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

I went in to the walk in centre to have scrapes, bruises and swelling treated after a bike accident.

The nurse who treated me was very kind, efficient, and helpful, and I received wonderful care! I was very happy with the treatment and advice, and left feeling much better.

The only downside was that I had to wait over an hour for care, and wasn't given any information upon check-in as to what to expect.

I just filled out a form and when I turned it in, the receptionist didn't say anything but thank you.

Slightly more direction would have been appreciated as it was my first time visiting.
