"Injured shoulder falling off bike on the way to..."

About: Cumberland Infirmary

Following my accident I was driven to the hospital where I was dealt with by friendly and competent staff. I was assessed

And after waiting a while was X-rayed and subsequently treated . The a&e was quite busy and I had to wait a while but this was down to people with more severe injuries taking priority . Faced with budget constraints and underfunding the staff here so a Stirling job! Thanks - that was the easy part now the physio to follow! 😀
