I visited A&E department after receiving an injury at work , I had an X Ray and I think they said I had a fracture to my thumb and a rupture but I an very unclear about this. I am a type 1 diabetic and unable to inject without help as I am left handed and it is my left thumb. I was told that I needed to see a rupture specialist and they would phone on Monday and see me by the latest on Wednesday as this was an emergency but nobody rang me. When I revisited A&E, I was treated like an absolute pest and the person dealing with me was very rude . It is now Wednesday and I still have received no call and am in immense pain. This department is rude and unprofessional and I am considering going to another hospital due to severe pain. This is a disgusting way to treat patients.
