"Taken by ambulances unexpectedly whilst on..."

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

I suffer with severe Crohn's disease and took a sudden unexpected turn for the worse at 4am in a holiday home whilst half way through my holiday in Newquay on Tuesday. With little other choice than to dial 999 an ambulance arrived to me with in 5-10 mins! I am a 22 yr old female who was in a pretty bad state and petrified of the thought of going to hospital in a area I did not know but the paramedics were faultless, absolutely brilliant they got me stable and got me safely to hospital where I was treated brilliantly by both nurses and doctors and saw a gastro doctor within an hour of arriving who knew exactly what they were talking about. I wish I could personally thank the paramedics who not only looked after me but my family too! Keep up the amazing job you superb team x
