DH broke his nose playing football yesterday, well, he is fairly sure its broken as it "cracked", lots of blood and its swollen up and has 2 black eyes.

He is thinking that there is nothing hospital could do but its looking pretty crooked and I think he should get it seen to?

What do you think?

Hospital - they should be able to reset it, maybe?

Take him to A&E or GP.

If it needs resettling, it tends to be done 2-3 weeks later as the swelling needs to settle fully to see how wonky the nose really is.
