"A&E after i fell and cut my face"

About: Southampton General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I went to my walk in centre after falling and cutting my face badly. I was seen by triage within about 20 mins. They recommended an xray which involved going to the main hospital in our city. I was seen in that A&E triage within about half an hour and went through to see a doc about 15 mins later.

The care was wonderful throughout. The doctors identified that I have an alcohol and a mental health problem which had caused my fall.

They get me to see relevant nurses/experts and I have left with a plan. They may have saved my life as well as stitching my cheek.
