My son was hit by the wing mirror of a moving car, damage to ribs and Right arm. Referred to Colchester A n E by own clinic. Saw nurse who said it needed an X-ray but she felt the whole shoulder needed an X-ray so she wanted a doctor to look at it. He came in prodded my son's spine, said it was muscle damage and suggested pain killers and a gel. When I asked him to repeat the name of the gel he did! Syllable by syllable in a very irritated manner. Then said "ok off you go" son is still in agony and totally lopsided! Will be taking him to our local minor injuries unit for a second opinion. Really not happy with the way we were treated, will not be going back!
