"my wifes dislocated shoulder"

About: Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust

My wife had a fall last Tuesday and we had to go to A &E at St. Helier , the unit was extremely busy and after a fairly long wait my wife had her shoulder put back. As it was so busy we left with no information on after care, only having a follow up in the fracture clinic for the following week. As my wife was in a lot of pain we contacted the Davis unit and manage to get an appointment on Friday 1st. The care and attention was marvellous and after xrays and a ct scan the damage to the shoulder was shown to be severe., the

Dr.managed to get us an appointment at Epsom next week as an urgent referral.

Well done St. Helier.
