"Accident at work"

About: Salford Royal

Back in July i had an accident at work (only just found this website now) i had several things wrong but i was very impressed with the way the Doctors, Nurses and health care assistants treated me, and the after care team - physios / occupational therapists etc.

whilst staying in hospital i had daily physiotherapy and memory checks, blood pressure/ temperature checks and several times a week i had blood tests carried out, oh and several x-rays to see how my bones were healing i had a head injury along with several broken/fractured bones and id like to say thanks to the doctors in Neurosurgery, Orthopedics (wrist, pelvis and spine dept) and Trauma for the way they dealth with my injuries

All these Guys are worth every penny they get paid - if not more !!!

Only issue has been follow up appointments, some doctors ive seen and have been discharged from but others i havent heard from even though ive rang several times to chase these issues up - i dont know about other peoples experiences with this side of things but i feel like im now just lost in the big pile of paperwork
