"Broken ankle in the Gynaecology ward"

About: Royal United Hospital / Gynaecology

I was taken to stay at this ward when I fractured my ankle, as there was no beds in the orthopaedic ward. The staff were amazing to me and so kind during the whole of my stay. My surgery kept being delayed because of emergencies prioritising over me, but the staff kept my spirits up and took care of me when I felt a bit low. if I had any issues and needed to speak to someone on the othopaedic ward the staff tried to contact the other nurses straight away, and if I had had any other problems they were quick to help me! This was my first stay at hospital and I want to say thank you to everyone that was there for me and looked after me! It made it stress free and very comfortable.
