Fury at doctor
WITH reference to your article toddler sent home with a broken leg (Hunts Post, January 17). I am not the least bit surprised. My 11-year-old daughter was taken to Hinchingbrook recently with a foot injury. She too could not put any weight on the foot.
WITH reference to your article "toddler sent home with a broken leg" (Hunts Post, January 17).
I am not the least bit surprised. My 11-year-old daughter was taken to Hinchingbrook recently with a foot injury.
She too could not put any weight on the foot. The female doctor who saw my daughter yanked her foot and made her scream with pain.
I was then told that my daughter was not in pain but was hysterical instead. However, as she was so upset they would do an X-ray as a precaution, but I was told she wouldn't be getting crutches.

I was furious at the attitude of the doctor and when we returned from
X-ray, it turned out that she had broken her foot and was put in plaster.

The unsympathetic doctor was replaced by a very nice one.
Hinchingbrooke is a great hospital. It's such a shame that a select few spoil its reputation.
