Mr W fell and injured his wrist in 2013.  He attended a Walk-In Centre and x-rays were arranged.  They were reported as showing no injury.  In 2016 Mr W suffered a further injury to the same wrist and x-rays were again taken, this time showing an old fracture to the scaphoid which could have only occurred 3 years earlier.  Treatment in a case failed, as did surgery with metalwork.  Mr W ultimately required removal of the scaphoid bone and has been left with a permanent reduction in movement and grip strength.  Had the fracture been diagnosed from the outset it is likely to have fully healed from being in plaster, avoiding any surgery.  Mr W received £53,000 in compensation.
