"No x-rays at the weekend"

About: Gravesham Community Hospital

Whilst I'm sure this is an excellent place to be treated during the week, when my daughter came in with a suspected fracture to her arm on a Sunday, we were told there are no x-ray facilities at the weekend. Nothing on the website states this and hence it was a wasted and frustrating trip. Please update the information on your website giving clearer information. When you or a child is in pain, you want them seen and treated at the right place as soon as possible.
