"First class service"

About: Royal Alexandra Hospital / Accident & Emergency Scottish Ambulance Service

(as a relative),

My father in law had a fall in his garden. The ambulance was great and the paramedic had a really positive attitude. The only downside was a time delay in A & E, but overall it was a first class service.

Good morning,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your father in law's recent experience of A&E - I'm glad that this was a positive one and that he was well looked after at all points. Waiting times at A&E can sometimes be a challenge when managing the variety of things people attend with, and making sure that the most serious cases are seen as a priority. I am glad though that this didn't impact negatively on the overall experience your father in law had.

I hope he is now doing well and thank you again for getting in touch,

Best Wishes,

The Ambulance crew should be praised I witnessed them rushing through traffic to get to him and they were fab and looked after him well.
