After a footballing injury I went into A&E with a pain just above my ankle, I was seen quite promptly however they failed to send me for an x-ray and sent me on my way with a sprained ankle, no crutches offered or any physio plan. I returned 4 days later as the pain was far too much to be a sprain, after a lot of deliberation and hesitation they sent me for an x-ray. Low and behold I had broken my tibia. I was put through 4 days of walking on a broken leg in extreme pain because they told me it was a sprain. I will never return to this hospital for as long as I live.
