"Knee Injury"

About: Huddersfield Royal Infirmary

I visited A&E three weeks ago after suffering a knee injury and was very dissapointed with the service I recieved. I had to wait two hours to be seen and after that was only given a leaflet and told to rest my leg for a day. I have since been told by my doctor that I have torn a knee ligament and signed off work for a month. I haven't been able to put any weight on my leg for two weeks and have had to try and get about at home on one leg! As a tax payer I would have expected to at least have been offered crutches or referred to a physio for further examination.
