Gp for assessment and diagnosis +/- x-ray.
And painkillers!

I work on the basis that most things get better within a day or two.  I couldn't be bothered hanging around at the GP, then hanging around at the xray place.  I'd probably only bother with all of that if it was as bad, or worse in the day or two following.

I spent five hours in emergency one night for a broken toe - GP clinic over the phone thought dislocated and I'd have to go to ED if it was that.  Previous two broken toes I've just taped together and that was that.

Gp is the first step then ? X-ray today if needed.
The gp .can refer you to a hospital ed or clinic if needed.

Let us know how you go. :)

Some xray places will bulk bill.  An xray shouldn't be a huge cost, anyway.

Definitely just go to the hospital. It will take forever but that's what will happen if you have to run around between xray/doc/etc anyway.

Sounds like you might have broken it (I only say that because I broke mine recently and it was similar in that it was OK in a sling but not out).
