"My son's parkour moment"

About: Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary / Accident & Emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

My teenage son decided to try parkour - jumping off walls and so on to demonstrate his acrobatic finest and the floor won.

He woke the next day with a swollen lower leg and pain. He was taken to the emergency department at Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary and from start to finish was treated superbly. Caring receptionists, nurses, radiologists and doctors all treated him quickly and professionally.

From initial assessment to discharge was quick and efficient. Don't believe the stories - our NHS is the best health service in the world.

Dear Patgz2

Thank you so much for this posting and your kind comments with regard to your son's care and treatment. I will make sure that the staff in the departments involved are aware of your comments on the standard of care they provided.

I hope your son is feeling better and took to heart the key message about the floor winning the argument!

Take care and my thanks again
