"Caring service from Leeds General Infirmary paramedics and A&E"

About: Leeds General Infirmary / Accident and emergency Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust

(as the patient),

My wife is a stroke victim of ten years ago and had what I thought was a heart attack. 999 was called and the ambulance arrived within two to three minutes. Tests were carried out with speed and sympathy and it was decided to take her to Leeds General Infirmary A&E department. From the time of arrival at 13:00 to the time of departure at 17:00, numerous tests and examinations were carried out. These all proved that things were normal and what was thought to be a heart attack was in fact a stress attack. Thank goodness!

The whole operation was carried out with efficiency and speed and was, in my opinion, a very excellent service done by caring, kind people.
