"Broken Arm"

About: King's College Hospital (Denmark Hill)

I recently broke my arm where the ulna meets the wrist bones, I went to A and E and was sen quickly and given quick effective pain relief. The staff were very nice and I was told I would have to stay overnight in the orthopaedic short stay ward and have an operation in the morning. The staff on the ward were very welcoming and reassured me. I am very happy with the orthopaedic team at King's College Hospital, the staff of A and E and happy with the members of the short stay orthopaedic ward. Thank You!
