PLEASE could I say a very big thank you to the staff at the Minor Treatment Unit at Portland Hospital.

I was unable to get an appointment at my doctor’s surgery and felt it urgent enough to give them a ring to ask if I could be seen by their department.

I was advised to pop along and someone would see me as soon as possible.

I waited around 15 minutes and was seen by an excellent practitioner who gave me a thorough examination and issued a prescription for my ailment.

The staff could not have been more efficient and helpful.

I have subsequently heard that some people are under the misunderstanding that this excellent department is closed.

This is most definitely not the case. They are open from 9am till 5pm Monday to Friday.

There are many services and clinics at this great little hospital and I think more people should be made aware of this fact.

There has been talk of it closing. By using it let’s make sure this doesn’t happen.
