"Broken Arm"

About: James Paget University Hospital

Broke my arm playing football, went to A&E late on a tuesday, waited a couple of hours which was not a problem as I was not in pain, poor staff in A&E had hassle with drug addict, police attended.

Was later admitted to have operation and had to be turned away for 3 days, unfortunately for me emergency cases had come in and had to be done first, which was fine as thankfully my injury was not serious, operation was all done, care was fantastic, patients / staff all seemed in good spirit.

Many thanks to wards 5&6, plaster room staff for making me laugh even though my arm was flopping about and of course the doctor.
