Sorry to hear of his injuries and hope he recovers quickly especially on this Christmas Day.

Why was he taken to Southampton General Hospital when we have 2 local A+E hospitals close by?

Merry Christmas to you one and all.

Only likely reason was taken to Southampton would be a head injury for which Wessex Neurological are top class. Here's wishing them a speedy recovery.
