"Overall it was an excellent service"

About: South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as the patient),

I took a tablet in the morning which got stuck in my throat and made breathing difficult.

A paramedic arrived within 5-10 minutes, after clearing my throat he gave me a general check and did not leave until he was satisfied that I was OK.

Overall it was an excellent service.

Dear Gold603

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I hope you are feeling much better now.

It is always rewarding to hear that our staff are continuing to provide an excellent service to our patients when they need us most.

I would like to pass your thanks onto the Paramedic who came to your aid. in order to do this I will need to know the date and address that the ambulance attended. Could you please contact me, at your convenience, at laura.martin@swast.nhs.uk?

Kind regards
