"Great care after the sudden illness and collapse of my wife"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital / Accident and emergency Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital / General medicine

(as a relative),

During the day in late May, my wife became more and more distracted and less and less responsive. We thought she was having a stroke, so called the emergency services. From then on she was treated in the most professional way by the ambulance men, the A&E staff, the ICU staff, the specialist and the general ward she was moved to.

It was not a stroke but a life threatening low salt condition that required that she should be kept in a coma while it was restored to normal.

Her family were kept closely informed and involved all the time and are very glad to have such a great team of health workers available. She is now in great shape!
