Whilst walking the coastal track near Dunstanburgh and struggling against the gales, I tripped and hit my head hard. Wrist and side of chest also painful. I was on holiday from York. Being alone I wasn't sure how to get medical help on a Sunday, and eventually called emergency services. From then on I was looked after superbly - by the paramedics who assessed and took me to A&E, and then all the subsequent steps through to overnight admission onto Ward 4, and follow-up in the Fracture Clinic next morning. Thank you all so very much.
