I suffered and injury to my thigh, I called 111 and was advised I needed an examination within 4 hrs, and was subsequently given an appointment for the urgent care center. Upon arrival I was taken to an examination room where i was sent home without being examined, having read further information about quadriceps contusions it seems I should have been at least given compression and crutches. Not happy, now having to take an emergency appointment at the GP waiting time, money and causing me more pain.
