"Abysmally handled"

About: Goole & District Hospital (Acute)

I went to Goole today with my ankle which i went over on 8 weeks ago, stupidly i left it as i thought it would be a waste of hospitals time for something that self heals. Anyway 9 weeks on and it is no better. I waited two hours to be told that i have to go for an Xray at my Local GP and they couldn't do it here. I said to the doctor that Local GPs don't have X-rays ... The member of staff argued with me and said they do.... I have just called my doctors and they don't !! Very very annoyed as i had to travel 40 minutes to get to goole and i don't drive. I am just going to leave it now as i cannot get to goole again. Stuck with this problem. Bad bad service.
