I collapsed with weakness, heart palpitations and feeling extremely unwell on 7/9/13. The response was fabulous. A paramedic arrived within minutes followed by an ambulance a few minutes later. I was given excellent care by both teams who were professional, caring and very respectful of my dignity. When I arrived at the hospital I was seen quickly and given a third heart trace (the paramedics had done two), a chest x-ray and full blood tests. Throughout I was given explanations by the nurse and the doctor and made to feel that I was in good hands. Luckily nothing serious was found but I was discharged with reassurance and advice. I have nothing but praise for those concerned.
