"Broken Foot"

About: Royal Hampshire County Hospital

Anything else?

Came into Winchester A&E last year. Had been to Southampton earlier in the week and told I had broken some bone in my foot. After further X rays at Winchester and viewing X rays from Southampton they told me there was no break.... They took my blood pressure and it was so high that they took it several times using a different machine before deciding that the machines were broken (?). Was there for over 4 hours and seen by 3 different doctors before I was diagnosed with Cellulitis (even though I had all the symptoms. Dismissed..... Went private and had MRI and was as well as Cellulitis I HAD broken some bone in my foot.... Unimpressed with Winchester overall really.
