"Great service from both ambulance and hospital teams"
Posted by Timmyboy (as ),
Had an infected hand Sunday night. 4 x normal size, temperature over 103, acute headache, hot and cold shivering and feeling VERY ill. 999 around 10. 45 pm, ambulance 10 minutes later, taken to A and E, straight on antibiotics, pain relief, bloods taken and very caring staff, concerns about sepsis. Stayed overnight, results came back as not sepsis buy more likely cat scratch disease CSD which can cause same symptoms as sepsis. Home on Monday with meds and recovery. Great service from both ambulance and hospital teams. Many thanks to all.
