"Ride-on Lawn Tractor Accident "

About: Derriford Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as the patient),

Following an accident where I fell 12 feet onto a concrete driveway on my ride-on lawn mower, I received care and reassurance from the first responder based in Modbury (sorry, I can't remember his name) whilst waiting for an ambulance from Kinsgbridge (David Sutton - Paramedic).

David and colleague put me on a spine-board, braced my neck and then took me into Derriford Hospital Emergency Department for further assessment.
