About: South Tyneside District Hospital

I had an accident 5 weeks ago and i went to hospital .The minor injury department from a&e send me home without having an x-Ray telling that every thing is alright.and to go at my gp if I have pains.

Even if I couldn't move my hand properly and I had pains. I stayed like this for two weeks until I could get an appointment to my gp and an xray and I find out I have a fracture. I use to like this hospital but after that I won't recommend it . You can't just send people home from a&e without a proper check just because is Sunday.

What if I cant recover properly now ?
