"Excellent Facility as an alternative to A&E"

My immediate and extended family have been treated at the Minor Injuries unit at Orsett Hospital many times over the past 10 years. We were all disappointed to lose the A&E since it opened the facilities have improved over time. I have never received anything but polite, efficient and effective service.
I was disappointed to read one of the reviews on here stating that it is "waste of money etc" and felt that I had to respond.
The department is what it is : a clinic for minor injuries. It is not there to deal with coughs colds - that's what the doctors is for.
I would totally recommend the clinic for all members of the family who are covered by their services. Note: it is worth ringing ahead to ensure that they can treat the injury as there are restrictions due to the size of the facility and you may be advised to attend Basildon A&E instead.
If we didn't have the facilities at Orsett the waiting lists and time at A&E at Basildon or Dartford would be much worse than it is now.
