"Overall care"

About: Gloucestershire Royal Hospital

I was collected on Friday morning, 25th September 2015 following a TIA (mini stroke). From the moment I got into the ambulance the care and attention I received was wonderful. The reassurance, courtesy and professionalism I encountered from all staff was excellent.

I was very frightened when I had the attack but was hugely reassured the moment I met the paramedic in the ambulance and it only got better as I was taken through a series of scans, tests of all sorts, discussions with junior doctor, consultant etc.

All so reassuring to me. I left the hospital a very much happier man then when I arrived some 6 - 7 hours earlier.

A big thank you to all. XX

I would defy anybody to find a better service anywhere in the world to that which I received at Gloucester Royal Hospital on the 25th.
