What I liked
there was no real waiting time as they were very quiet for a Saturday afternoon
What could be improved
I was taken to A&E by a Community first responder as I'd hurt my leg and couldn't walk she used a wheelchair to manoever me through the area - sadly she had to leave before I was finished. the doctor had me x rayed and I was the only person in the x ray dept too so that was quick. he then said I hadn't broken anything but needed an MRI scan to identify what was going on. I'd already been referred through my GP so he told me to chase it up as i couldn't have an MRI scan through A&E - despite the staff falling over themselves waiting for patients...............
Despite the fact i couldn't walk I was just told there was nothing more they could do.
why couldn't i have an MRI through A&E
Why couldn't he chase my orthopedic appointment
I now have an appointment for physio in 3 months time............ what real good is that! I still can't drive far or walk beyond 100 yards without a stick
