"Bad accident at work at Sandwell General Hospital"

About: Birmingham and the Black Country Sandwell General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a staff member),

A large metal sheet fell on me while working at Sandwell General Hospital.

I went to A&E where an x-ray showed a small chip off my right elbow. My lower right back was also injured but was not examined.

I went to my GP as soon as I could get an appointment but the doctor was angry I had been x-rayed at Sandwell because he could not access the result. He refused to examine me and said Sandwell should look after me, it is their responsibility. He just asked how much time off work I wanted.

I have had no treatment or pain management despite being in pain for months now.
