I injured my leg playing Squash on a Monday evening in February. My wife took me to A&E at about 19. 00 for an initial assessment, the diagnosis being suspected Achilles tendon rupture. I was put in a cast and given an appointment for the next day.
On the Tuesday, I was assessed and the rupture confirmed with an ultrasound scan. I elected for the surgical rupture repair and given a tentative appointment for an operation on the next day. Wednesday lunchtime I was admitted operated on and with an overnight stay, released on Thursday.
During all of this, the care and attention I received was terrific, no complaints whatsoever - maybe the rhubarb crumble could have been better!
