Fracture clinic a long way from entrance, not good especially when you have to hop on crutches so you can't really attend appointments alone. Lack of wheelchairs also an issue.
My injury was found to be worse than initially told and I was admitted for an operation. I was admitted a couple of days later and had the op and discharged the next day. All the medical staff involved in my care, on the ward and those involved in the op were kind, couldn't do enough for you and I can't fault the way I was treated. Food a bit blurgh but it is a hospital not a restaurant.
After reading numerous horror stories about the way patients are treated in some hospitals I was relieved to find this was not the case at Notley Ward. It was a great place to spend a couple of days, would recommend it to anyone needing orthopaedic surgery.
