Over here on holiday from New Zealand I woke up very dizzy, nauseous and fatigue. Had stroke 7 years ago and one TIA episode previously. Called 111 services, appointment made at Helston Community Hospital later in day, lovely Irish doctor checked me and decided I should go straight to Truro after she had spoken with doctor at Truro.
On arrival at emergency, within 10 minutes I was called by nurse for triage.
Taken through within another 10 minutes, bloods ecg etc taken, stemital for the nausea. Told a CT scan would be done and I had the CT - this was all carried out so efficiently and in a friendly manner by just about everyone. Perhaps receptionist and triage nurse could have been a little friendlier!
Finally the registrar and TA nurse came to talk to me. The results were okay but I was told an appointment would be made with a consultant in the TIA clinic within 48 hours and an ultrasound of my cardios would be done and advised on future care. This all happened as advised. Your service is exceptional and i am in the medical profession (or have been, retired now!)
