"First class care after calling 999"

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

(as the patient),

I called 999 for myself on Sunday and a paramedic arrived within 5 mins. , I live in Tavistock. I think he was called Tim. He was a marvellous chap. He gave me a check up and I didn't need to go to hospital. I called 999 but I should have really called 111, but Tim said I would probably have still seen him anyway. I just wanted you to know that he was first class.

His number was 1042 9599
