"Fracture clinic"

About: The Tunbridge Wells Hospital / A&E and trauma unit

Went to Pembury with broken Arm. Did not see a doctor nor a fracture nurse. Was passed to a physio therapist who did, at least, have it ex-rayed .

They plastered my arm and I was still in pain 3 days later. Went to my local hospital and was told my arm had been plastered incor rectly, so tight that blood flowing through my arm had been constricted, hence the pain.

My arm was replastered properly and the pain disappeared.

Never again.
