What I liked
I managed to get an appointment on time, and the area appeared clean.
What could be improved
Basic supplies e.g. disposable gloves, basic dressings that we have at home!
I was referred by the weekend cover, of my doctor's surgery, on a Saturday, with a nasty wound that needed to be assessed by a doctor.
The doctor had no dressings to replace the one I was wearing.
The doctor cleaned his hands before putting on an old pair of white, ripped rubber gloves with the little finger missing! I was so stunned that I didn't stop him raising the corner of the dressing to have a look.
Describing this to our friends, they thought we were describing a 3rd. world surgery.
