Fractures can happen for a variety of reasons, from playing football at the park on a Saturday to slipping over in the snow or a traffic accident.
It is estimated that over 300,000 people are treated for fractures by the NHS every year.
Tests within hospitals these days are very good at identifying fractures as the equipment and procedures in place usually rule in or rule out a fracture very quickly. But sometimes things can go wrong.
Time constraints, poor processes, failure to order the correct tests and misreading x-rays can all lead to a missed fracture diagnosis.
