"Sunday morning visit for leg pain"

About: Whitworth Hospital

Had to visit Whitworth Hospital this morning for ruptured achilles ligament. I was seen immediately and examined, given crutches and good advice along with follow up physic and back out again all within 20 minutes. What else could anyone ask from a minor injuries unit
