"Paramedic from Penzance"

About: South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as a relative),

A paramedic from Penzance, Paul, showed up to help my 105 year old great grandmother, as she was having difficulty breathing due to a heart condition. And as a family we wish to compliment and thank him as he helped to subside her symptoms and made her last night comfortable.

He helped her, was patient and very respectful to her and the rest of the family and provided great advice.

We just want to compliment him and regretfully inform him that she has later passed days after.
