About: Eastbourne District General Hospital

I went in there and it was realy fast to get seen to and get an x-ray as I had hurt my leg,but after that when I went to see about my leg they told me just to take pain killers ( which I had already been doing for a week) and walk on it more ( which had actually made my leg worse) and now i'm in more pain than I was before I went there.
