I fell off a horse and was unconscious for some while.
I was initially attended by Tom, paramedic from Morton in Marsh. His care and attention were superb. We had to wait some time for an ambulance and then later for the air ambulance and during this time he talked to me, checked me constantly and helped with the pain. I cannot praise him too highly - he was outstanding and I am very grateful.
I was eventually airlifted to Gloucester hospital and thankfully have since been discharged and all is OK. It was a pretty scary accident and I am just so grateful to everyone concerned - Tom, the ambulance crew and the air ambulance crew.
