"The doctor who set my broken wrist ..."

About: Leighton Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked The doctor who set my broken wrist was very good. They took care to explain the procedure beforehand, and it was more or less what I expected The terms "reduction" and "manipulation" were extemely misleading. It involved brute force between the doctor and nurse to pull my wrist straight. What could be improved? The doctor struggled to get wires to run the machinery and to get a nurse to take part in the procedure. It was not their fault, but looked like a shortage of equipment and staff.
