"Fall off a roof"

About: Royal Preston Hospital

Anything else?

Fell off a roof on Wednesday 31st July. Had to call ambulance for the first time ever , Paramedic turned up very quickly, followed by ambulance team All the people I dealt with were very proffesional and caring.I was in a real panic and in pain having fallen directly onto my back from around 10 feet. I would like to thank all the staff for thier help and care during a very difficault day for me. They looked after me very quickly , checked me out and did Xrays ect. The final result was lucky for me with only broken ribs , cut arm and severve bruising. The team in A and E were fantastic , my sincere thanks to all of them. When I needed help, the NHS was excellent for me Thanks
