"Orthopaedic review"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I saw the doctor for my ankle pain and was seen on time and swiftly. The staff were friendly and courteous. The doctor took a careful history and performed a thorough examination. I had a X-ray on the same visit and was soon called through again after the doctor had reviewed it. He took time to explain the probable diagnosis and management plan, which I really appreciated. I am awaiting the MRI and physiotherapy appointments that he has booked for me. The only negative is that I have been told that the wait for physiotherapy is 26 weeks!
