"My shoulder"

(as the patient),

Ten years ago I fractured my shoulder in about 17 places, I was admitted to QMC then Nottingham city hospital and saw the amazing Consultant A Wallace who carried out an external fixture procedure which at the time was not a normal thing to do, I had pins sticking out of me for the next 6 months and then ten years of riding, rock climbing and all the things I normally do. Last year I had an infection more surgery and more excellent care on Harvey one ward, I simply cannot thank all the staff involved in my care and all the consultants and especially mr Wallace.

I play with my daughter, ride my bike run, climb and most days have a very active life, sure I have osteoarthritis and have my bad days and pain but without the EXCELLENT and AMAZING skill and care from these two great hospitals and their staff I wouldn't be doing all the things that make up my life.

I cannot thank everyone involved personally so I thought I would tell my story here
