I attended A&E. because I couldn't walk. I had to be taken from the car into the hospital in a wheelchair. The dr who I saw, straight away assumed that I had arthritis, He didn't examine my knee at all but send me for an x-ray, On return from radiology,he reiterated that I had arthritis, He ignored the fact that I couldn't put any weight on my leg and couldn't walk. If he had examined me he might have discovered that I had torn my cartilage in two places, It has taken many weeks and an MRI scan organised by my GP before I can walk, I think it was negligent that the DR made to attempt to examine my knee at all but could diagnose arthritis just by looking at it,, I have no confidence in the hospital.
