I was admitted to st James hospital with a red and swollen foot and it was assumed it was infected as I'm a diabetic although blood results were normal and wound swabs were normal turns out it was fractured an appointment was made at the leeds general infirmary fracture clinic which I attended to be told they would have to discuss my foot with the consultant who wasn't there as it wouldn't heal if they operated on it. I found that strange as I'd had my big toe amputated and that healed. I was sent another appointment and they also sent me one on the same day as the diabetic foot clinic so I rang to cancel the diabetic one as I'd already sent rebook to the text appointments. Only to be told that the fracture clinic appointment has been cancelled as there are no doctors. But they'd kindly booked another in a months time. so you want me to walk around for another month with a swollen painful fractured foot that I can hardly walk on. Perhaps the hospital should stop taking any major trauma patients as it seems you don't have any doctors.
