"So many people to thank"

About: Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

Anything else?

From First-responder to Consultant ... where to begin?! If you ever have to drag yourself into A&E, try to make it Gloucester. If you brake something see if you can make it a Friday! Everyone who dealt with my "smashed" wrist took it's potential effect on my work (Osteopathic) and interests (self-building and sculpture) very seriously. I have friends with similar fractures who made nothing like the recovery that I have. This is down to excellent communication between professionals at the start of the process in A&E, and the highly enthusiastic and experienced response of the Consultant + Registrar and their scalpels.
