What I liked
I had cut open my lower leg as I fell over a fallen tree near Horsham.
I lost a good deal of blood walking downhill to get help..
I was taken by ambulance to Red Hill.
The urgent care unit there was very busy.
After waiting over two hours, I was given a hasty dressing on my leg.
The next morning the dressing was blood soaked.
My wife drove me to Crawley Urgent care,
There, very soon I was seen by a nurse
who gave me nine stitches and a bandage that held.
My wife and I were impressed with his competence.
We were happy we could see him two more times.
He arranged for a visiting nurse to see me at home..
She trained my wife in replacing the bandages.
We felt able to make a long scheduled trip
for Thanksgiving with our daughters and grandchildren
in the USA.
On return to Horsham, I was referred to a consultant
at Queen Victoria Hospital. She assured us that in a few
more weeks the deep slash would be fully healed.
What could be improved
My wife and I have no complaints about Crawley Hospital
Happy Christmas and a joyful 2012
