Suffered hand injury.
Attended A+E. Fantastic experience. Booked in for the fracture clinic the next day.
Again, all fine apart from having to request the consultant look again at the second x-ray showing the break.
Treatment being discussed up to that point was for minor ligament damage only (I believe a support bandage).
After having observed the break treatment was revised to having a cast fitted.
A little disconcerting but thanks to having been talked through my x-ray at A+E I was aware of what my injury actually was and ensure I received the right treatment.
Perhaps adding notes to clarify if there is a break would be an improvement.
