I just want to sing the praises of the Royal South Hants Minor Injuries Unit.
My husband and I have had cause to use this service 3 times in the last year. Two weeks ago I fell over on the pavement near my house and injured my arm. I could not straighten it. After taking the granddaughters home to Sholing, we visited this unit.
5pm was a busy time there, but I was seen within 10 minutes and assessed. A short time later I was ushered in to see the paramedic, who referred me for x-rays. It turns out that I had broken my arm. I was checked out for head injury as my face was a mess, paperwork was completed and I was referred on to the ortho team at the General.
Excellent service and I felt listened to and well cared for – in just under 2 hours. Anyone in the SO postal area can use this service and I commend it to you. Well worth checking out the range of illnesses / accidents they can deal with, as it might save a trip to A&E at Winchester and the inevitable long wait there.
