Medical attention in London

Jump to last reply

Just returned from stay in London where my husband had bad bathroom slip and fall. It was obvious that the cut on his leg would need professional medical attention. Went to private hospital Urgent Care Center at Hospital of St. John and St. Elizabeth on Grove End Road in St. Johns Wood. The care could not have been better anywhere. Examined by physician, plastic surgeon on call came at 5pm on a Saturday, bandaged, medicated, xrayed all within 2 hours. Returned to hospital at 8am next morning for skin graft. Keep in private room until 7pm when again checked by surgeon (Harvard trained, of course). I will not mention price but much, much lower than USA. Two days later a private agency registered nurse came to our hotel room to give injection and also spent a full hour redressing the skin graft source area (it was a minor wound). That cost 70 pounds. Going to hospital in taxi was difficult for DH so had hotel make nurse arrangement. Another exam and redressing the wound area with pressure packing in hospital before we finally left for home. Of course, the surgeon emailed us to find out how DH did on the flight.
Not good to have problem far from home, but glad it was in London.
