Rallying to my cause

Share this article

On Wednesday December 17 I was involved in a road accident on Broadway and had to be cut out of my car and airlifted to Preston Hospital. Thankfully I came out of it with no lasting injuries, but maybe only now am I realising the size of what happened and the impact that it had on me and the people around me.

I would like to give a massive thank you to all of the passing people who quickly came to my aid at the scene; to all the emergency services – Fire Ambulance, Police and Air Ambulance teams who attended; and to the medical staff at Preston Hospital for their quick and efficient work.

People complain about waiting times at hospitals, but when you really need to be seen, I always say that our Health Service is second to none.

Lastly to all my family, friends and work colleagues, sorry for giving you all such a major scare and thank you so much for all your kind words and cards, and of course the subsequent and very necessary accident related banter (you know who you are).
