In the early hours of this morning (Sunday) my neighbour called me because he was bleeding from an infected operation wound and he couldn't stop the bleed - and I couldn't either. I know he is taking Warfarin which stops clotting. From the moment I called 999 your organisation's response could not have been bettered.
My initial conversation led to the arrival of the paramedic within 10 minutes and her treatment, explanation and advice on the way forward was excellent. The reassurance she and her colleague gave my neighbour was very much appreciated by him.
