Having had a fall on Tuesday, I attended A&E yesterday because my foot was painful and swollen.
After a relatively short wait I was seen by the Nurse Practioner.
They assessed me thoroughly and sent me to X- Ray.
I was then returned to the Nurse Practitioner, who told me that I had a fracture.
They quickly found an appropriate "boot", fitted it, gave me follow up advice and sent me back to reception where I was given an appointment at the "Fracture Clinic" for next week.
The receptionist arranged a taxi to take me home, having asked the Taxi Driver to come in so that I wouldn't have to wait outside in the cold!
I couldn't have asked for better care.
I was also impressed at the kindness which I experienced from everyone whom I met.
I was back home in under 3 hours from when I had originally set out.
