"Chest pain"

About: Frenchay Hospital / Accident and emergency MIU - Westgate Centre Yate South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust / Emergency ambulance

(as the patient),

I had attended the NHS walk in clinic in Yate suffering with sever chest pain. They acted promptly due to the symptom's I was showing. An ambulance was called, they kept me informed at all stages what was happening, and tried to keep me as calm as possible under the circumstances, until the ambulance arrived. When the ambulance crew arrived, they took over, they were very caring and did everything they could to keep the situation less stress full. I feel that the treatment and service provided was second to none, I felt relaxed in their care.

My experience continued right through to my discharged from hospital.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I hope you are recovering and feeling much better.

It is always rewarding to hear that our staff are continuing to provide excellent care to our patients when they need us most.

I would like to pass on your kind words to the ambulance crew who came to you. In order to do this I will need to know the date on which they were called to you. Could you please contact me, at your convenience, at laura.martin@swast.nhs.uk?

Thank you again for providing feedback on the service.

I would also like to add my thanks for your kind comments on behalf of the staff at Yate MIU and Frenchay A&E. Your comments have been passed on to the staff concerned.

It is always nice to positive feedback as the NHS can often receive lots of negative press. Thank you for sharing your experience.
