"Visit to minor injuries"

About: Shotley Bridge Hospital Site

I came in after suffering from injuries in a rta I had already seen my go about the pain in my neck and they recommended to have an x Ray on my wrist which was tender and painful. I went there to get the X-ray thinking I had just gone about my wrist and ended up being strapped down on a bed in a collar and blocks not able to move I understand this is for the best and was a precaution but I lay there 3 hours in a room on my own with no way of contacting a nurse or doctor at one point when the pain worsened I had to ring the reception on my mobile to get some one to come in the room. This was very distressing and I would never go back there again the medical treatment was right but the personal was disgusting
