"Fractured proximal ulna on holiday"

I arrived in A & E on my first day of my holiday
Seen and left within 2 hours, staff were pleasant, helpful and efficient
An appointment given for the fracture clinic the next day. The consultant was extremely pleasant, helpful and a full explanation and guideance given for my management.
I am a physiotherapist myself so sometimes it can be expected that I already know how to manage this type of injury but when this happens to yourself it is completely different. This consultant treated me as an individual and not as another professional which was enlightening.
My whole experience has given me some faith back with the NHS and I would happily work in this hospital
My only gripe is that I have now returned home and will need to contact my local hospital for further follow up appointments of which I am sure that I won't receive the same personalised treatment but that of a number.
Great, timely and efficient care given
Personalised and treated as an individual
Amazing staff in the fracture clinic especially the specialist who treated Me
Would highly recommend
