"Dislocated finger"

About: Southampton General Hospital

Anything else?

Having taken a fall off a set of stepladders, my small finger was at a strange angle and bleeding. A friend drove me to Southampton A&E. I have nothing but praise for the treatment I received. The receptionists, triage nurse, x-Ray staff and the doctors, all very professional. My finger was stitched up, then reset in the position it should be. The light banter with the doctors, helped make a traumatic experience for me, not so bad at all. So a big thank you to the staff who treated me.
