"Round the houses"

About: Royal Hampshire County Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

My wife was referred by our GP to Alton hospital for an X-ray and possible treatment for a possible broken foot.

We attended at 830 in the morning of 8th Sept and was advised to return to our GP for results. We were then referred to A*&E in Winchester for treatment and after waiting 3 hours we were advised to make an appointment in the next two weeks with the fracture clinic.! We complained and eventually obtained an appointment for five days later.

so even now we are no further forward. The system is disfunctional and would be better placed in a third world country.
