"Broken ankle while on holiday"
About: Derriford Hospital Derriford Hospital Plymouth PL6 8DH
On the 22 September 2013 I sustained an injury to my ankle while on holiday. I was taken by ambulance to Derriford Hospital arriving about 10 pm. I was examined almost immediately and waited a short time before going to x ray, prior to it being put in plaster and going to a ward. I was there until the following evening. At all times, the staff I met went out of their way to take very good care of me and make me feel comfortable. My safe transportation home was also arranged by the staff for which I am extremely grateful. Following surgery when I was home,I have just had the plaster taken off and am still struggling to walk. My thanks to Derriford Hospital for the care I received.
