I feel on rough ground and I was very lucky because a lady doctor passing saw the accident and attended me immediately. She did all the tests she could do without moving me. She called the ambulance but unfortunately, they took 1 1/2 hours to get to me, in which time I laid on the ground. , Two other passer by nurses attended to me, also a Fireman. The ambulance was called three times before it arrived.
When it arrived I had excellent treatment by the crew, they did all they could. I was taken to East Surrey Hosp, x-rayed and found to have broken my femur. Taken to a ward where they put it in trackshown and then operated on the next day.I stayed in hospital for 1 week in Woodland Ward Bay 5 where I had excellent treatment the staff were great. I am now recovering at home.
