Stood on a rusty nail today went right through my shoe into foot. Have thrown shoes away my foot bled that much. My queary is do i need a tetnus shot? Tried ringing GP but he shuts half day on a wednesday and just get a recorded message to ring 999 in an emergency or NHS Direct. Rang NHS Direct for advice and got a recorded message about swine flu and they were really busy and call back later have rang 5 times now.
My dilemma is i dont want to waste A&E time its not urgent but with my immune system with preds etc i just want to be safe than sorry. I could ask to speak to GP but i have to get through receptionist first tomorrow and i know i will end up having to make an apt which seems a waste of everyones time plus that will prob be next week.
Hugs and nebs to all who need them X
