my partner went to the A&E dept. a week ago, with a swollen elbow, as he does kickboxing and thought he'd done something. 5 hours later he was told hes damaged the cartage and need to rest, ice pack and ect. 5 days pasts, no better, he had to make an emergency appointment with his gp as the pain got worse. after wait just 2 minutes (very good) and a quick heart rate test and examination he was told it was an infection that had been growing for weeks. the gp put him on the strongest antibiotics you can get. im angry that a A&E doctor missed this and a GP (god bless him) got it bang on with in minutes of looking at it. :(
