I'm not sure who I should be contacting. My girlfriends brother had a motorbike accident in Thailand a few weeks ago. He stupidly wasn't wearing a helmet and landed on his head, he is now in a medically induced non reponsive coma. My girlfriend is now out in Thailand with her Sisters, but they are finding it hard to understand the full extent of the injuries. 

I'm just trying to find out if it's possible anyone could reach/contact the hospital in Hau Hin, Thailand, get copies of scans, speak to the Doctors... Just anything really.

I would truly appreciate if you could point me in the right direction.

    I have pm'd the link to you Nick and it should work.

    What a worrying time for you all.

    Perhaps the Thai Embassy in the UK might be able to help

    Dear Nick,

    the shock from the impact to the brain has shut the body down so he wont be able to use the brain to function except to keep the body going although intensive care will be doing most of that for the moment for your injured broI ther.  He may come out of it but it really depends upon the extent of brain damage so he may not be so lucky.    I am hoping for the best for him and thinking about your family. best wishes

    Richard
