What I liked
The staff in the minories injury unit were very professional, helpful and friendly when my husband needed treatment. This service is excellent.
What could be improved
However, a follow-up visit to the fracture clinic was very dissapointing. The doctor/ consultant that my husband went to see told him that his broken finger was healing well while holding up the old x-ray that was taken two weeks ago when he first came in to the minor injuries unit - with his broken finger.
This consultant, had not even bothered to take another x-ray to see how well the finger was doing. At the same time, he told my husband to keep the bandage off as he did not need it anymore.
Funny that - when on earth has a broken finger healed in two weeks....?
