"X-ray Department"

About: Alnwick Infirmary / General medicine

(as the patient),

After 4 months of pain my GP sent me for an Xray on my leg. I was called and told that if I can walk there is nothing wrong with my leg.

I thought the x-ray was a waste of time, I was told it probably was muscle damage, which could last a lifetime.

I said I will go then.

I think the answer is, what the GP wants, he gets.

After weeks of pain this is just what I wanted to hear.

I will think twice about coming to this hospital in the future.
