My wife was compelled to call emergency services as we felt I was having a heart attack. The first responder confirmed this.
We live of a boat and when the ambulance arrived we had 3 people from the ambulance service plus my wife and I with two excited dogs on the boat! The ambulance service team were nothing but superb! An interesting extraction from the boat enabled me to be rushed to City hospital and straight in to the cardiac suite. The care and attention I received there was nothing short of amazing.
Within 90 minutes of dialling 999 I was on the cardiac ward having had PCI and a stent fitted. The ward staff were amazing, caring and concerned at all times. I feel that in this age of complaint it is essential that amazing service from all levels of staff should be recognised and applauded. I wish to make my appreciation very clear. Simply the best.
