"Visited A&E and extremely dissatisfied"

About: Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital

Anything else?

This is the worst place i ever visited. I got a wrist sprain from past 4 months and my GP referred me to a specialist but its taking ages to get the appointment with him. The pain got worst from last week and now I cant even move my hand or lift an empty bowl. I got a small baby of 8 months who needs lifting every now and then. So today i visited A&E as i felt worst today. they took the X-ray and said because its not a fracture they cant do anything. Do i have to break my arm to see a specialist?
