"Physiotherapy after serious accident."

About: Community physiotherapy / Dereham physiotherapy clinic The Queen Elizabeth Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

Had fantastic care over the last 3 years after I shattered my right leg, and a compound fracture of the ankle.

Queen Elisabeth Hospital Trauma & Orthopaedic Dept. Mr. Chakrabati, the Consultant surgeon saved my leg after my accident in July 2010 and Mr. Pasapula operated so many times to fix it that he deserves a medal. Everyone in that Dept. were brilliant.

Follow up care at Dereham Physio Dept are wonderful, especially Mrs. Linda Long, who was so friendly and professional. Gave me lots of support and advice.

I think the whole staff there should be applauded.

So should Thetford Physio Dept. who, in between operations saw me for a number of months when I was sent there.

So many people to thank.
