A teenager walked for ten weeks on a broken leg after three doctors failed to spot his football injury. Michael Boyle went to hospital twice and saw his GP - but was told repeatedly his fracture was a soft tissue wound.Source: The Metro
The 16-year-old's father, also called Michael, said: "I'm fuming my lad went through all that pain. We were just getting fobbed off. This is not the NHS I expect and pay for." It was only when his father took Michael, of Allerton, Merseyside, to a physiotherapist at Everton FC that the break was discovered. The family is considering legal action.
