“My son who was born in St Helier, was playing rugby for the first time in a taster session on the field opposite St Helier hospital. He dislocated his thumb in a tackle and was taken across the road to A&E. The staff were great, resetting his thumb whilst keeping him calm. The experience didn’t put him off the game and he went on to enjoy the sport at school for a number of years after. My family has relied on our local hospital for decades.”
