When I broke my wrist on Saturday 6th January I went into denial; when the problem wasn't solved by a bag of frozen peas I headed into A and E early Sunday. The treatment I received from start to finish at Wexham Park was second to none.
First of all, a big thank you to the on duty medic who performed a closed reduction on my wrist and the nurse who so patiently helped me to remove my rings; X ray saw me promptly and follow up appointments came in thick and fast.
Secondly, the member of staff kept a very close eye on my recovery, supported by staff at both Wexham and Heatherwood - unfailingly helpful in all instances.
Finally, physio at Wexham who made absolutely sure I worked hard on my recovery and got back to normal in the least possible amount of time. All appointments were on time and personalised to my needs.
A sincere thank you to everyone who made such a painful and worrying experience (my first, and hopefully last, broken bone) into a positive one that reminds me of just how lucky we are to have the NHS.
