(as the patient),

I had to call 111 who decided very quickly to send an ambulance. The ambulance staff were so lovely, they reassured me and got me to hospital quickly. I was handed over to Dr Murray and his amazing team who treated me with so much care and kindness. Every member of staff I met was an absolute credit to the NHS. Thank you.

We will share your story more widely within NHS 24 so that our staff can be reminded of how their excellent care enhances the overall patient and family experience. If you wish to contact me with any further detail, then I would be delighted to hear from you. You can get me by email at patientaffairs@nhs24.scot.nhs.uk. It would be good to share your story directly with the staff involved.

I would like to ensure that your positive feedback is passed onto the crew who attended to you. To help us identify who they are, can I please ask you to give our admin team a call on 01224 812200 to pass on some further details which will allow us to identify the call on our system?
