"Treatment of broken wrist"

About: Stafford Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I fell and injured my right wrist on the afternoon of last Friday while staying at a friends house in Eccleshall. A friend took me to A&E where I was seen within an hour and a fracture diagnosed. It was pulled and plastered and I was sent home.

I was contacted on Saturday morning and asked to report to Trauma & Orthopedics for surgery. I had surgery on Saturday evening and was discharged from Surgical Annex ward on Sunday afternoon.

I have nothing but praise for everyone I came into contact with Mr Raine, the consultant, Nursing staff and A&E Staff. Thankyou all
