What I liked

I encountered a 'close shave', with a hedge trimmer yesterday morning,and required stitches to my lower thigh. I arrived at Addenbrooks at 11.40,was assessed and clean up and 6 stitches later was back in the car going home within 40 minutes.

The Staff Nurse was polite and helpful ,as well as good at their job.

Well done!

What could be improved
