I very recently broke my wrist on a Sunday - the day it is claimed that there is a skeleton staff and services by certain politicians! I was welcomed efficiently by the receptionist who very wisely advised me to remove my wedding ring. I was seen 30 minutes later by a very friendly and sympathetic doctor. Potential options were explained to me and I was X-rayed straight away by a very gentle radiographer. I then had my wrist realigned under a local anaesthetic and put into a cast. All the staff were very courteous and allowed my family to stay with me through every procedure. Everything was explained and I was shown my pre and post X-rays. I was out of the department in less than 3 hours. I cannot fault any aspect - what could have been better? ? Nothing. (Well maybe just not breaking my wrist in the first place! ! )
