My mum suffered a stroke at about midnight one Saturday night. My father realised this and called the ambulance straight away. It arrived quite quickly.
There was then a discussion by the crew as to where to take her and it was decided to take her to the stroke unit at the Nottm City Hospital. She should have had immediate treatment and an injection which helps recovery, the staff on duty wouldn't wake the doctor to come and see her so the crucial time for this passed.
She was bed bound from that day and was paralysed down her left side.
We feel the lack of treatment contributed to poor quality of life and would like to make a complaint.
