"Poor treatment"

About: Scarborough General Hospital

while on holiday my grandson had an accident and went to scarborough a & e twice after seeing 3 doctors and having x rays we were told he had just bruised the bone in his leg and to encourage him to walk on it. After coming home 5 days after the accident we took him to our local a & e at james cook university hospital after seeing a doctor and having another x ray he now has a pot on his leg as he has a non displaced fracture of his leg. not happy with the doctors attitude while we were there and even had to ask for a second opinion before they would x ray his leg.i will be phoning PALS first thing monday morning. god knows if anymore damage has been done by following there doctors ill placed advice.
