I attended A&E on Saturday 30th November around 4.30pm after injuring my toe the previous day... after an hours wait I was seen in A&E and quickly referred to XRay and back to A&E for the results. The doctor showed me the XRays clearly highlighting a dislocation in my second toe. He outlined my treatment choices to me and answered any questions I had. I opted to go for manipulation without an anaesthetic injection and I have to say that his manner was absolutely professional and empathetic at the same time. I was discharged for frature clinic the following day and was on my way out after less than 3 hours and in far less pain than when I arrived. I have to say that absolutely everyone ... from the reception lady clerking me in to the doctor in A&E to the XRay staff were just amazing and I thank everyone of you. We have a NHS to be proud of!
