I hurt my ankle so I went to the local minor injury unit. The doctor there told me I had fractured my distal fibula so put me in a cast and set me up with a fracture clinic appointment. I had to transfer my care to another trust, and arranged a new fracture clinic appointment. When I arrived the Dr told me that my ankle wasn't fractured! He offered no explanation as to why there was a conflict in doctors opinions, and also no advice was offered to me to look after my injury. I left feeling very confused and worried.
