Won­der­ful NHS

The Oban Times - - Districts -

LAST week was one of the rare oc­ca­sions I re­quired to ac­cess the su­perb ser­vices pro­vided by the NHS.

Fol­low­ing a some­what em­bar­rass­ing kitchen in­jury (okay, I ad­mit it, I lost a square go with a tin of corned beef), I pre­sented my­self on Wed­nes­day evening to ac­ci­dent and emer­gency at Lorn and Is­lands Hos­pi­tal, Oban.

The staff there could not have been bet­ter. Yes, it seemed like a quiet evening as I ar­rived around 9pm, but ev­ery­one was un­fail­ingly cheer­ful, po­lite and help­ful.

I was swiftly ‘checked in’ at re­cep­tion and treated bril­liantly by nurse Tim, an af­fa­ble Lon­don­der who was just be­gin­ning his night shift.

Within 40 min­utes of ar­rival I had been pro­cessed, had the wound cleaned and dressed, had an anti-tetanus jab ad­min­is­tered, was pro­vided with ad­vice and was on my way home again.

Crack­ing treat­ment from a great team.
