"Looked after my father who collapsed"

About: Southampton General Hospital

My father collapsed while out at a church meeting on Sat 7 March. He was brought to A and A but had a memory problem and could not remember my surname or any other information. He was given a scan and kept in overnight. The next day he remembered more information and I was contacted by a doctor who updated me on his condition. All the Staff were excellent in helping him in his confused state and all showed great compassion for his wellbeing.
