Fracture to the wrist after a fall. I fell on rocks on the shore while walking. I had to get back home, where I phoned NHS 24 but the lines were blocked by too many calls. A friend drove me to A&E Stranraer, who liaised with the Dumfries consultant via computer or other technology.
I had a plaster cast put on but had to go to Dumfries for surgery. I had an operation the next morning. This was all done within 24 hours.
