"The ambulance and hospital staff who helped when my husband had a stroke"

About: Raigmore Hospital / General Medicine Scottish Ambulance Service / Emergency Ambulance

(as a carer),

I came home to find my husband on the floor unconscious. I phoned 999. The ambulance people came. They were fantastic and so were the hospital staff. I am trying to send a card to express my appreciation but can't seem to find where to send it. My husband died, so it is a bit later than I had hoped to be doing this - can you help?
