"Excellent treatment in A&E for scald turned septic"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Anything else?

Was advised by GP Surgery to go to A&E, as it was swamped by MMR inoculations. Was seen on Friday morning May 3rd promptly and treated very swifltly. Admittedly the Department was blessedly not busy! Was then seen for two further visits early in the morning to dress the burn. The nurse and Health Care Assistant were excellent. Friendly, re-assuring, and very efficient. I feel very lucky to have received such wonderful treatment. Thank you to them and to the Reception staff.
