"Drop in centre treatment for suspected fracture to..."

About: Caterham Dene Hospital

visited in April, I can not fault the reception team, facilities and care from nursing staff. however the Radiography department fell short in taking an x ray on my foot, despite advising I had a similar issue 3 years ago I was limited to an improvised weight bearing x rAy that showed no fracture - nearly 2 weeks later and much limping later BUPA have confirmed a fracture. great facility but please ensure we resource sufficiently to ensure correct equipment and diagnosis.
