Having been referred to the fracture clinic after a fracture that was diagnosed at a walk in clinic I arrived at my appointment time of 10.00 am. I was finally seen around 11.20. The doctor was helpful as was the nurse who put on the air cast boot ( as a result of me travelling in the next few days which I now realise has been helpful rather than a fixed cast and i really appreciate it ). I'm a fit and healthy person and this is the first time I was in hospital - I was in pain and over whelmed by the whole experience. I don't think the staff I was seen by really realised that I couldn't take in all the instructions which were brief and quick, let alone remember them. They need to make sure we understand whats involved. I am relying on the Internet and hope the advice I read is correct!
