"Brillant hopsital and amazing staff"

on the 28th September 2014 I had an accident on my right leg I was taken to heartlands hospital where they did no x-rays I wasn't examined properly was given one crutch and sent home I was sent to the QE hospital by GP when I got to the QE hospital I went to the outpatients where I was x-rayed and I was sent to a&e where I saw a doctor and he told me there was a fracture in my lower leg on my fibula. I want to thank the QE hospital for finding the fracture and doing something about it straight away the A&E staff were fantastic they treated me with respect if it wasn't for the staff at the hospital finding the fracture I could have been in a worse situation couldn't fault the staff they did there jobs brilliantly at the moment the fracture is healing up nicely and will take another to months to heal but again I want to thank the A&E department and the fracture clinic for all there work in finding the fracture and doing something about it straight away
