I went to Whipps Cross A and E at lunchtime on 10 February 2021 having fallen and hurt my wrist. Registration and triage were very efficient and I was quickly referred to the Minor Injuries Unit. I was seen immediately by a lovely nurse who sent me for x-ray. When I returned with x-rays showing a broken wrist she gently bandaged it with a plaster cast. In total I was in the hospital not much more than an hour after I first walked into A and E. I was told I would be contacted by the fracture clinic within 72 hours for review but was in fact called the next day and offered an appointment for review/permanent cast for the 15th February. Please pass on my thanks to all the staff concerned (I'm sorry I can't remember the nurse's name) for their high level of professionalism and kindness. I am very grateful.
