"Holiday accident"

About: West Cornwall Hospital (Penzance)

Enjoying a holiday in Cornwall when unfortunately I slipped while walking along the coastal path at Lands End. My husband managed to get me back to the first aid post where I was advised to go to the hospital for further treatment. All the staff were considerate and helpful, particularly the Staff Nurse and Doctor on duty. I was seen promptly, had x rays and then informed that I had indeed broken my ankle. This was quickly plastered and within a couple of hours I had returned to our holiday accommodation. Thank you so much everyone involved, your care was very much appreciated.
