"A&e treatment"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I went to a&e about my elbow. I fell over on it. I could not move it and it was extremely painful.

I then sat for 2 hours and was called I went into minor injuries and saw a doctor well if it was a doctor as I didn't know who the person was. The doctor tried to examine my arm but it was too painful and I was sent for an X-ray then I came back waited 10 minutes. I was then called over. I went to the desk and the doctor said it's ligament damage take tablets. that was it! !
