Dear glitch24

I can only imagine how anxious you must have been to find your gran unwell. I'll let my colleagues in the Ambualnce Control Centre know what a difference they made to your awful situation this morning.

In the meantime, I'm really glad you are feeling more at ease, and I hope your gran's much better.
