"Possible broken ankle and knee"

About: Barnsley Hospital

I went to A&E on 29/09/15 after slipping in dancing and going over on my ankle, I thought I had broken both my ankle and knee, I was seen by a nurse within 20 minutes who was very polite and caring. Then I was told I may have a long wait due to it being busy however, I was seen by a doctor roughly 30 minutes after seeing the nurse. The doctor was extremely polite and professional and sent me for an X-Ray, I was taken to the X-Ray department on the bed due to it being too painful to walk. All the professionals that cared for me while I was at A&E were amazing and a credit to BGDH. Top quality care.
