"Broke my arm/elbow"

About: Musgrove Park Hospital / Paediatrics

(as the patient),

I was riding my horse and it bucked and I fell off - I felt sad and in pain.

Dear Evied10,

Poor you. I do hope that you are feeling better now and in less pain. I hope that you are being well looked after by our team here on Oak Ward. Both the paediatric (children's) and orthopaedic (bone) teams share the care for children and young people that have broken their bones- so I hope you have now met staff from both these teams to help you get better again.

If you feel that there are any things that we could do better to support young people in the hospital then please let us know. I hope you get better much soon and return to riding your horse!
