Anything else?

While staying with friends on a visit from Exeter on Saturday 22nd June 2013 at 10 pm suffered a collapse in the car park where we had just had a meal. It was decided to call an ambulance and the decision was to take me to Addenbrookes a journey of some distance for further tests. . Arrived at the A&E department and was immediately attended too, had a very full examination blood tests and a chest X Ray. Was seen by a junior and a senior doctor and kept fully informed at all times. The waiting times between tests were minimal .Cannot speak highly enough of the treatment received or of the respect shown me or of the options offered me when all the tests had been completed.Am now back being monitored by my own GP. Thank you for every thing you did at such a difficult time.. Would also include the Ambulance staff who came from Bishop's Stortford to pick me up in the thanks.
