Earlier this month I suffered a sudden, disabling stroke, and passed out for a short while, but had sufficient time to recognise that I was in serious trouble. The Ambulance dispatchers for the South West Ambulance Service immediately deployed a crew, who were with me very quickly. Being fully aware of my surroundings and situation, I can only describe the way these guys dealt with me, in this most FRIGHTENING predicament, as absolutely 'wonderful'.
I am SO grateful for their care, consideration and sheer professionalism in assessing me, getting me out of my house (which has difficult egress) and transporting me quickly to on-going care at hospital in that first magic hour. I know what I owe them, and they are my heroes!
So, my sincerest thanks to every member of the ambulance service involved in saving me on that truly awful night. Good job!
