I went to A&E with my partner after he had injured his finger. We were seen within minutes of entering the department and even the member of staff was impressed. However, the worker mentioned that he was to keep his arm elevated, mentioned that a sling would help but then made the judgement that he "would not use it anyway" and sent us on our way.
I felt that this was an unfair judgement, the sling should have been offered regardless of the staff 's personal judgement.
