"A and E"

About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital / Accident and emergency South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as the patient),

I collapsed on my boat having returned from a successful trip to the Isle of Wight. The boat at the time was secured to a pontoon at Christchurch Sailing Club.

I was fortunate in being able to call for help from fellow club members.

I have nothing but the highest praise for the paramedic first response team, the Ambulance Control, the Ambulance crew and the staff at A and E in the Royal Bournemouth. Also the following at at Outpatients where I needed further assistance

The high professional standards were impressive and could not have been bettered in any way
