"Visit to A & E 6/9/16"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

Following an altercation with a sharp part of a ladder whilst decorating my daughter took me to A & E (urgent care). I was assessed promptly and after a short wait stitched. Plenty of local anaesthesia was used and checked for efficacity by a nurse practitioner.The wound was stitched very promptly and well.All staff were kind and patient and I felt well cared for.The department was busy and under the circumstances I felt I was very quickly dealt with - just 3 hours from arrival to departure.
