After ringing 111 for advice for my husband for chest pains and pains down his left arm. I just want to praise the staff who answered and dealt with us.
The ambulance came in 10 mins. and the paramedics were wonderful. Very caring and attentive and completely put my husband at ease. Unfortunately they were very busy in A&E which is understandable with it being the weekend. We were kept informed about how long the waiting period was by the on call doctor which was good. Even though we had a long and tiring wait we were still treated considerately.
We eventually got to the short stay ward and the nurses there were lovely. At midnight we were informed that the duty doctor would probably not be able to see us until the morning. I was offered a bed to sleep in next to my husband and the night nurse gave me a sandwich and refreshments.
We just want to show our appreciation of the whole team which dealt with us.
