"Great care in Minor Injurys, then taken by Ambulance to A&E Forth Valley"

About: Forth Valley Royal Hospital / Accident & emergency Stirling Community Hospital / Minor injuries unit

(as the patient),

On Friday I had a fall getting into a motor boat on Loch Lomond and banged my head. I felt ok after it happened but very sore I was helped up by members of my family. As we were out for a day on Loch Lomond, I didn't think I needed to go to hospital to get checked out.

The next morning, I was feeling worse & my mum suggested we go to minor injury at Stirling Community to get checked out just to be on the safe side. Once there, Ruth the staff nurse seeing me asked me what was sore, if my neck was feeling sore. She felt all over to see where it was sore then said she would need to put a collar on me then I would need to be ambulanced to A&E at Forth Valley Royal. All the Dr's & nurses in A&E to the radiographer who were looking after me were very nice.

They explained everything they did as they went along.
