Rating: 3 out of 5.

Two patients have the particular misfortune of being hurt while doing something they love: 50-year-old motorcyclist Michelle crashed head-first into a lamppost while riding back from a motorbike rally, while Timothy, 69, collided with the back of an ambulance while practising for a 100-mile bike ride. Unfortunately he had to make his own way to St George’s – the ambulance was already occupied.

Then there’s Eleanor, who cut her finger on a meat cleaver. She’s had bad luck with her fingers, she says, before rattling off the most middle-class roll call of accidents you could imagine: “I once cut my finger while cutting a frozen bagel – oh, and on a butternut squash.”
