Our patients are at the centre of what we do. There is nothing more heart-warming for our team than when a former patient gets in touch and wants to visit us. If you, or a family member, has been a patient of ours and would like to get in touch, we would love to hear from you. Some patients share their story to help raise awareness of our work.

My car had hit a tree and I was trapped underneath the dashboard, needing intervention from the fire service to set me free. I had sustained very serious injuries to my legs and pelvis, I had injuries to my hands and I was losing a lot of blood.
