"Waste of my time"

About: Whiston Hospital

I broke my wrist in 3 places the consultant dealt with myself, i explained i was self employed and was losing work. I got treated like i was on a conveyer belt wasn't even xrayed when the pins were removed. It looks horrific and feels horrific i've had to pay private for physio as i am losing money being self employed. I',m really upset i got treated as a usual fracture case who has all the time in the world which i don't as i'm self employed and got given a leaflet for exercises!! I saw the consultant years ago with my daughter and he acted like a god then which was over 12 yrs ago i see nothing has changed.
