"A broken finger"

About: Cromer Hospital Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital

(as the patient),

I injured a little finger some 3 weeks before visiting Cromer Hospital minor injuries unit as it was not getting better. After an X-ray it was found to be broken and was described as a mallet finger. I was given an appointment at the Norfolk & Norwich hospital fractures clinic the next day.

At the N&N the finger was re-examined and put in a splint with a referral appointment to Cromer, my local hospital in 6 weeks.

At that appointment, after another X-ray, I was told the finger had healed and I was given advice on physiotherapy with a referral telephone number if there were any problems.

Staff were always courteous, appointments on time and the service excellent for what to me seemed a minor matter compared with some of my co-patients.
