A couple of years ago I had an awkward break in my ankle. The first time I visited A&E I was told to go home and walk on it as it was a sprain .. .. .. the second time they x-rayed the injury and straight away found the problem. I was assigned a surgeon who operated 10 days later and fixed me. I think that he did a good job and I'm happy with the results, apart from the early onset arthritis that that type of injury causes
. I just wonder if the NHS could be made to be better by refocussing it in on what it was designed to do rather than what it has become.
