"Care for Broken Thumb"

About: Grantham & District Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

Vet student on a sheep farm for lambing experience. Was trying to catch a sheep and unluckily the sheep spun round and collided with my thumb, providing a loud crack!

The service was quick, the doctor was kind and the receptionist was friendly. But the advice wasn't good.

Response from United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust

Dear Char,

I’m pleased to hear the positive comments about your visit to A&E but obviously concerned that the advice was poor.

If you wanted to contact the A&E sister/nurse in charge, through the Grantham PALS team on (01476) 464861, we would be happy to discuss this further. By having the detail of what occurred we can look at our practice so we can improve in the future.
