I went to A&E the day after landing back in England after a holiday in Thailand.
Unfortunately whilst there, I stood on a sea urchin and the spines became infected in my foot.
The triage nurse seemed concerned and it wasn't long before I was taken into minors
From there the A&E doctors were unsure how to treat my foot, now twice the size as it should be.
The doctors took pictures, and it seems a lot of work was done behind the scenes.
Swabs and blood were taken.
I was eventually put on juniper ward.
The doctors decided that an operation would not benefit me but a course of antibiotics may help.
So, 5 days of medication, 4 times a day.
The juniper ward staff were the best. It was in my mind, 5* treatment.
They should all be commended
Thank you so much
