In the evening, my 3 year old daughter developed a croup cough, she woke at approx. 21:30 struggling to breathe. We have been through this before with her but it's still so scary when it happens. We tried to calm her down, took her out in cold air but it wasn’t improving. Called 111, who were lovely and they decided it was best that they call out an ambulance. When the paramedics arrived (approx. 22:00) she had calmed down a bit but they were beyond lovely, so good with her, making her smile and putting everyone at ease. An amazing paramedic called Ali and a female colleague (apologies didn’t manage to catch her name) but they were both amazing, kind wonderful people. Hospital staff were absolutely lovely too. My daughter is now fine, I was just bowled over by how kind and caring these paramedics were - real life superheroes. We are so grateful for what you do and for the NHS.
