"Driving assessment"

About: Astley Ainslie Hospital / Rehabilitation

(as the patient),

After a near-fatal motorbike accident, I was asisted twice at the SMART centre at Astley Ainslie Hospital in Edinburgh. At the first appointment, I was given invaluable assistance in getting back to driving with hand controls. After 2 years, I had another appointment where I was assessed as fit to drive again on a full license.
