"I want to say a huge thank you to them both"

About: South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as a relative),

I called 999 thursday morning at 6 am, as my husband had passed out in the bathroom. When the ambulance crew turned up it was stuart and amy from stroud. Have to say, they were lovely, so reassuring, friendly etc.

About and hour or so after, when they got my husband in the ambulance and we drove off, he kept being sick in the ambulance, so we stopped and Amy gave him an anti-sickness injection etc, on the way to the hospital. We were stuck in traffic, so they put on blues and twos, as my husband wasnt very well.

I want to say a huge thank you to them both. These people don't get enough credit. Thank you guys. xx

We would be happy to share your story with the ambulance staff involved in your husband's care, however to do so we will need some specific information.
