"Sprained wrist, seen very quickly"

About: Erith & District Hospital

After a bad night with an injured wrist, I'd aimed to arrive for the 8am opening, but missed and arrived around 8:05am. There were already four patients waiting ahead of me, so I gave my information and settled in to wait. No sooner had I got my book open (no small job with my wrist) when the queue cleared and I was called in. I was checked for more serious possibilities, diagnosed with a sprain, given a wrist support and some good advice, and was on my way home by 8:20am. Excellent job!
