"Fabulous service from Kettering A&E"

About: Kettering General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a relative),

My little boy who is 3 fell off his slide and broke his wrist approx 2 weeks ago now.

We rushed to A&E where we were seen in literally 5 minutes and were told to go to x-ray. We waited in x-ray for less than 10 minutes, where my partner took my little boy in to be x-rayed.

As he is autistic the radiologists were so, so helpful, calm and kept my little one calm too. Five minutes after the x-ray we were then told to go back to A&E where we waited for less than 2 minutes and then taken into a side room where a very very nice and efficient nurse put a cast on my little boy's wrist, explaining he had broken it and would need the cast on for 3 weeks.

She was quick as anything and we were sent home ten minutes later after she had given my little boy some jelly babies for being a good boy :)

Very happy with the service, we were at accident and emergency for less than one hour! Fabulous service KGH, thank you so much. Will be coming back next week to have his cast removed.
