Following up on the "What Ambulance" Blog I can now report what happened after our fall lady was taken from Staple Hill highstreet.
Our two gallant "knights" took her to Yate minor injury facility where she received fabulous care, assessment and basic treatment. The fracture repair was beyond the remit of this facility. She was transported home by a neighbour so she could change into suitable clothing to counteract the cold. From there, again by private transport, she attended Southmead Hospital. There again, she received attentive treatment and under local anesthetic her wrist was manipulated back into position and plastered.
So, in conclusion, attention and good treatment is available on the NHS, as in this case, but you need to make your own transport arrangements.
Perhaps there is a case for more clinics providing a wider range of facilities and strategically located throughout the country.
