What could be improved


Anything else?

i went through a & e at qmc in notts with a broken right wrist and was treated really well and swiftly. i wanted all my follow up appointments to be at the royal in leicester but i cant even get through to talk to anyone!. i get bounced around from department to department. hung up on, im sat here with a broken wrist and no one at the royal seems to care! i need follow up treatment at the royal because it is nearer to where i live but i cant even talk to a person in the fracture clinic because no one answers the phone! i am disgusted with how ive been treated today and will be complaining using every avenue i can find. All i want is an appointment at the fracture clinic and you cant even do that!
