"Urgent attention following double dose of..."

About: Dorset County Hospital

Late morning Tuesday 10 June a friend took me to Dorchester Hospital as I had fainted after accidently taking a double dose of tablets for cardiac problems. I was quickly taken for a blood test when a number of samples were collected by a very understanding nurse. Very shortly after a young doctor appeared. The blood samples had been rushed to the lab for testing and she had a copy of the results. I was naturally very concerned as I was feeling quite unwell. The nurse checked me over and assured me no harm had been done to my heart. The doctor immediately went a wrote a letter for my GP. I was very relieved and grateful for the prompt and professional attention I received. Very Many Thanks Dorchester hospital. Ivan Reid . .
