"Dodgy toe"

About: Southend Hospital

After walking into a door frame I popped my baby toe out of position. Having never been in a hospital before and being new to the country I was naturally nervous. The A&E department were fantastic! Saw to me in a reasonable amount of time, talked me through everything and even gave me a giggle, especially one of the doctors. Thanks so much for the care and the laughs.
