"There was nothing any of them could have done better"

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

(as the patient),

I have an ongoing condition which left me in extreme pain and distress. I rang 999 and paramedics arrived within seven minutes. It was excellent. The paramedics helped enormously, phoning my GP to get an appointment for me.

The person who took my call was also very good.

There was nothing any of them could have done better.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I hope you are recovering well.

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

I would like to be able to pass your kind comments onto the Paramedics, and the member of staff who took your call. In order to do this I will need to know the date of the call, and the address that the ambulance attended.

Could you please contact me, at your convenience, on 01392 453831 ot email laura.martin@swast.nhs.uk?

Thank you again
