"Emergency admission to University Hospital, Ayr"
Posted by GSC (as ),
I collapsed with nausea and dizziness. Totally unable to stand and completely disoriented, my wife phoned NHS24 (no comment about them) and an ambulance took me to Ayr A & E.
Excellent attention there, and I was admitted. I was admitted into a medical ward at Station 6. The nursing and support staff on that ward were absolutely fabulous - cheerful, efficient, kind, and giving great attention with care and compassion.
That goes for all of them, and I hope they realise just how comforting their approach was at a time when I was feeling rotten. I was kept in until for a few days, and I have to say that the clinical care was first class, with all options being explored for a diagnosis.
My recovery is continuing at home, and I'm sure it has gone better because of the terrific nursing care I received. Thank you everyone, especially Claire, who spent ages each day helping and persuading a couple of really ill patients to try and eat.
