"Thought I'd had minor stroke."

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital

On 17th April 2015 I awoke to find the left side of my face not working. I thought I'd had a minor stroke. Ambulance crew were pretty certain that it wasn't but was Bell's Palsy. Hospital did various tests including brain scan and confirmed it was Bell's Palsy. I am physically disabled so routine things are a little tougher for me sometimes than for mister Joe Average, but the staff could not have been pleasanter or more helpful. I was in their care for approx four hours and at no point did I feel lonely, abandoned, forgotten or ignored. Sincere thank you to the staff that looked after me that day. I apologize that I can't recall their names but their assistance was much appreciated. Thank you, from little Ken.
