After visiting Southend A&E I was amazed at the response to my plea of suffering a pain after falling from my bike, After an initial X ray and visual diagnosis, I was told there was nothing wrong with it, I said that i was in intense pain and was sent home. It turned out I had a hairline fracture which was undetectable via the X ray equipment that was used at Southend A&E and seemed very outdated. After much un- necessary suffering I decided to visit another Hospital who diagnosed my condition more thoroughly. I was very dissapointed at the rudeness of some members of staff on duty at the Hospital.Who seemed to have a not care less attitude.
