This lady's husband went to the doctor's with the runs (Dr Dowling at Davaar Surgery in Dukinfield). The doctor picked up another issue with breathing and sent him straight to A & E at Tameside Hospital. He was transferred to MAU where he subsequently collapsed. Crash team did a fantastic job. All in all we had a great healthcare experience.
