"Helping me."

About: York Hospital

Hi i was rushed into the hospital on Sat 18th of June with a suspected stroke. I had a brain scan luckily there were no signs of a blood clot. I would like thank all of the staff involved in helping me recover. My special thanks goes to two particular Consultants. One was clear on what had happened to me i understood them completely thank you Doctor. Thank you to the other Consultant, you listened and you were really helpful in helping me deal with my situation and i can not thank you enough. Thank you so very much. We need our NHS it is a lifeline to all of us. My name is Theresa (Teri) Armstrong.

Response from York Hospital

Thank you Teri for your taking the time to contact us.

I am sorry to hear that you were rushed to our Emergency Department at York Hospital with a suspected Stroke, I am glad to hear that there were no signs of a blood clot and I hope that you are recovering well at home.

It's great to hear that both consultants were able to listen and provide you with the information you needed to help you understand what was happening at what I am sure was a very stressful time.

I will be very pleased to pass on your comments to all the staff involved in your care.

Thank you again for taking the time to write to us, we always value and appreciate feedback from our patients.

Kind regards

The PALS team
