"My child was sent away with a broken leg and no X..."

About: Wexham Park Hospital

l took my little boy who suffers from muscular dystrophy down to Wexham Park hospital after he hurt his leg. After two hours we saw the doctor and twenty minutes later the doctor who attended to him told us his leg was bruised and swollen but will heel on its own, she also advised us to give him Colpal for the pain. There was no X ray taken. Three days later we were at an appointment in London to discuss the corrective surgery on his feet due to his condition and the specialist sent him for an X ray. They found that his leg had been broken. This is not acceptable.
