"Fracture clinic"

About: Eastbourne District General Hospital

I attended the fracture clinic yesterday and was greeted by a cheerful receptionist. The nurse who accompanied the Dr ensured I knew where I was going and what to do on returning from X-ray. There was a short wait to be seen which is expected when dealing with people who need reassurance and care.

Tip - If you need the loo go before you book in at X-ray as the person in front of me was called twice while they were elsewhere.

I would like to work in the plastering area as they are a lovely happy team and great fun!

Thank you all for excellent care delivered in a timely manner.

I try desperately to avoid hospitals but life and body sometimes conspire to make me attend 😬
