"I’d like to thank the man who looked after me"

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

(as the patient),

I had to activate my alarm to get help as I was in severe pain. The people who operate the alarm system must have called for an ambulance as paramedics arrived to see how I was.

Three years ago I had gout in my spine and this flares up leaving me in terrible pain. I’d like to thank the man who looked after me – he provided excellent care.
