"A&E + Day Surgery"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

Anything else?

After being knocked off a motorbike and thrown over a car, I had a broken wrist and some other minor injuries. This was 9am on a Friday morning, and they could not fit me in for surgery until Monday morning to set the bones with 3 wires. However, the orthopaedic Dr straightened the bones and set into a cast. She then called me each day with an update of when the Op would be. I attended the Day Surgery on the next Monday, where the op was explained to me, and I was in theatre less than 30mins later. The care from the Recovery Room was excellent. Released the same day, a bit of a mix up being told I could get the pain meds I needed from a chemist, which I could not, meant going straight back to the Surgery ward to collect some. Everyone was very helpful and friendly.
