"999 Call for ambulance at 0500hrs on 14/03/2014"

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

(as a relative),

Wife was having a hypo which I could not stabilize. Called for ambulance on 999, which arrived within 5-10 minutes whilst I was still talking to the dispatcher.

The crew consisted of Oli and Mike from Swanage. They were totally professional in their approach, put my mind at ease and sorted out the problem. I would like to thank them most sincerely for their help and understanding, and congratulate all concerned on a job well done. Thank you again.
