"Great treatment in A&E / Minor Injury"
Posted by Pioden (as ),
I was referred to A&E by NHS24 with severe knee pain following a run a few days earlier that seemed to be getting worse rather than better despite following RICE protocol.
I was seen very quickly in Minor Injuries where my leg was palpated and I was whisked off very efficiently for an x-ray. I was told it was probably cartilage damage, given advice to rest, an appointment with the fracture and orthopaedic clinic, and a pair of crutches all within 90 minutes - I was very impressed with how smoothly everything ran, and how very pleasant all the staff who dealt with me were.
