    Mr Lambert was deeply kind and gentle. He was very careful with my sore arm, managing to examine me, without causing pain. He listened carefully and noted all the information I had given him, explaining its relevance to my injury. He answered questions with patience and clarity. He gave me advice on how to aid my recovery and has referred me to a physiotherapist
