"Ambulance Service / High Praise for Paramedic"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

I would like to just express my most sincere gratitude to the Paramedic and driver who attended my home when I required the ambulance service and hospital treatment a few days ago. The Paramedic was none other than exemplary in their approach and I feel that having been lucky enough to have been provided with medical assistance by someone with such proffessional conduct and clear commitment to their job role could ad should not go without commendment. From the speedy arrival time following the call for the ambulance right through to my arrival and admittance into Fairfield Hospital, the service I recieved was none other than outstanding and I would very much like you to pass on my personal thanks for making such an awful and somewhat embarrassing situation as comfortable and relaxed as they could possibly have done so. I imagine this will be one of many compliments you will have recieved about this particular member of staff and therefore are probably already aware of what an asset they are to the NHS? There are people in job roles who do their jobs very well and follow protocol to the letter which is always reassuring in a medical assistance requirement situation or emergency ...but then there are the odd few who do their jobs exceptionally well and I personally felt that this paramedic was a clear example of the latter. I would also like to say Thankyou to the hospital staff that dealt with me at Fairfield Hospital after the initial treatment from the Ambulance service. The nurses and Doctor dealt with me efficiently and were truly lovely and attentive whilst I was in thier care. I am extremely grateful for both the NHS service and for the wonderful work the hospital staff do.

Kindest Regards.

Mr R J Miller
