"Child broken collar bone"

About: Wharfedale Hospital

My son fell playing in the garden with a friend, and after much pondering about whether his back did really look odd, or was he just making a fuss, we remembered that someone had told us how good the unit at Otley was. Anyway, within 30 minutes of our arrival into a fairly busy waiting room, we were processed, seen and x-rayed. Needless to say his collar bone was very broken! The staff were super efficient and reassuring, and after quite a lot of different hospital experiences in the past, it was a pleasure to find that we have such a superb facility close by. I would not hesitate to recommend it, and it is such a shame that the pressures of the NHS prohibit these facilities elsewhere.
