We arrived at a and e and were quickly seen by a nurse. We were treated by friendly and caring reception staff and nursing team were awesome. The waiting area in children's a and e was so child friendly and even with a broken leg Frankie was kept smiling. The Dr who attended to us was thorough and caring. The doctor was so great medically but also understanding of our concern as a parent. Such wonderful people skills and although couldn't not be certain if a fracture was present the doctor was right to be cautious. X day staff amazing and understanding also. Our fracture clinic appointment was made within 48 hours and care outstanding. A fracture was located and quickly treated. Thank you to the staff who carefully placed a pink cast on Frankie's leg whilst entertaining with bubbles. A horrible time for mum and dad but Frankie couldn't have been in better hands. Thank you to all involved
