"Excellent fracture clinic"

About: Southmead Hospital

BRI hospital tried to make me wait 9 days after breaking my ankle, Southmead could see me the very next day!!!! My appointment was for half 10 - I was out by half 11. In this time, I'd had one cast removed, another one put on, an xray and a consultation. I was involved in future decisions about my cast. The consultant (and nurses) also warned me not to take the blood thinners that BRI had insisted I inject daily (I'm only 22 yet BRI said I was at risk of clotting...).
