I attended at peak time on Friday evening with chest pains associated with very high blood pressure. I was triaged within 10 minutes and in cubicle with 15. For the next 5 hours I was looked after by doctors nurses and ancillory staff . I declined to remain in overnight and was given medication and then advice by 2 doctors to ensure I had a good rest at home. The following day I received ambulatory care which mirrored the A&E treatment and it concluded with a senior doctor consultation that resulted in a course of treatment that 24 hours later has settled what was a life threatening situation. An exceptional primary care service. Thank you.
