I was feeling faint and passed out while at work - as my hip gave me a sudden very bad pain. My colleague was great and called the 999 number and a paramedic came.
He was really great - took plenty of time - checking my blood pressure - which he thought was low - so he contacted my GP, chatted to them, and stayed with me until he could see that I was fine, taking my blood pressure again and an ECG.
I felt full confidence in him and was very grateful that because he was able to spend time with me, I didn't have to go off to A&E.
