"Impressed with A & E initially, first visit was..."

Having broken the base of my 5th metatarsil on my left foot I was really impressed with my first visit to Airdeale, however my impression has gone downhill quickly. I have kept getting conflicting advice on best practice with this injury. I came back last week 7 weeks since my accident to be told it is still broken and needed to come back to see a consultant, I did last Thursday and that was a waste of time, they said they were the perosn you see when you have just broken a bone not 7 weeks later, said I would need a ct scan and to see a different consultant, Thank fully my husband was with me as I could not understand most of what this person said, their manner was obnoxious. I have rung to see how soon I am likely to get an appointment and it will be weeks as they only put me down for a routine scan. So while A & E appear fantastic it clearly goes pear shaped after that
