"My incident 11/1/14"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Gateshead)

I suffered a seizure last Saturday. (I'm not epileptic and have no diagnosis of related illnesses, other than anxiety disorder. Your staff (and I would appreciate it if this could be extended to the ambulance staff) were kind, helpful and supportive. I'm a former Metropolitan police officer and therefore very aware of how busy A&E departments are and how much pressure the staff are under. I hope I don't need to visit again any time soon, but I would like to pass on my heartfelt thanks to everyone that did their best to help me.
