Traumatic injury can happen to anyone

Alison, a former neuro-physiotherapist at The Royal London Hospital, was cycling to work one morning when she was hit by a car. She was treated for spinal injuries by the trauma team at The Royal London.

“As a trauma physician turned patient, I know the care I received was the best there is, and I am alive and walking now thanks to them.”
