"Broken wrist in A&E on Sunday"

About: King George Hospital

Great experience on Sunday 23rd march - very busy in A&E when we arrived at noon but assessed, x-rayed and pain relief provided within the first hour. Then seen to by a very efficient doctor who patiently explained the issue, treatment and possible outcome. Broken bone manipulated, plastered, re-x-ray'd, follow-up appt arranged and discharged within 4 hours - we were very pleased and impressed by the treatment received by all staff in the dept especially the nurse in resus and all of the doctors in a&e/minors/majors.
