"Son with broken wrist"

About: Herts & Essex Community Hospital

I took my 20 yr old son in to minor injuries, he was seen within 5 minutes, sent for an xray, he had to wait 15 mins for x-ray dept to open after lunch. Was x-rayed straight away, went back to minor injuries, seen straight away and told he had broken his wrist in 2 places, had to wait 5 minutes to be plastered.

In and out in just over an hour.
