"Wrist fracture - great care"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I fell backwards down steps in garden - sweeping them. Knew wrist was broken so husband took me straight to ESHospital A&E dept.

Registered at desk had one and half hour wait, despite having said my wrist was broken and in considerable pain but after that my care was first class - amazing care. Pretzie, John and Jo did a great job on manipulation and just over 5 weeks on all is going really well. I cannot commend those three highly enough - brilliant team! Xray were good too, no further waits anywhere and whole place very professional,
