"Visit to A & E after fainting spell"

About: East Of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust / Emergency ambulance Watford General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I was sent by ambulance to the A&E department after a fainting spell in the early hours last weekend. I was given a blood test, ECG and examined. After seeing the registrar I was reassured that this was nothing serious and was allowed home.
