"Emergency care"

About: Royal United Hospital

Anything else?

I was admitted in late April with a dislocated and broken ankle/leg following a fall down the stairs and the care and attention I received in A&E was second to none. On arrival I was swiftly taken to x-ray to confirm the diagnosis and then into majors for the ankle to be manipulated and temporarily plastered. The staff in A&E are very professional, kind, caring and dedicated to their work. Within 10 hours I was being operated on, and then taken to Forrester Brown ward for a 5 day stay. My stay on the ward was pleasant, the staff, despite being very busy, were only too willing to help me when I asked At home now, I am slowly getting more mobile and looking forward to returning to work
