My Mother who is 83 fell and broke her arm. After a 999 call I was told no ambulances would be available for hours and I should driver her to A+E myself.
After this shaky start I was extremely impressed with the whole service. A+E were fast, compassionate and took in to account my Mums hearing problems and her Alzheimer's.
We quickly went though the X ray department and minor injuries who were all excellent and at no time did I have to chase anything or any one.
Chris from the discharge team was brilliant and after sorting me out with some extra support stayed with my Mother while I went and recovered my car.
A service to be proud of.
