At lunchtime on Tuesday, whilst crossing the road that separates Portcullis House from the Palace of Westminster, I fell and fractured my hip.
I have received excellent treatment from the NHS and hope to be back at work following my discharge from hospital next week. In the meantime my Truro office remains open, with staff available to assist constituents.
The NHS advises that people walk with care, however much of a rush they are in. I have learnt how important it is to heed this advice, and hope that people can learn from my mistake!
