My wife suffers from chronic acid reflux, which, if left untreated, can drive her blood pressure up to levels which could trigger a stroke.
Recently, the acid reflux and alarmingly high blood pressure failed to respond to our available remedies and we resorted to 999. The first response professional arrived within a few minutes, examined my wife calmly and efficiently, before declaring she should be admitted to hospital.
The ambulance crew arrived after a very short interval. The care demonstrated by this crew during both the journey to hospital and admittance to the Acute Medical Unit was superb. They in turn were greatly assisted by the comprehensive assessment carried out by the initial response professional. My wife and I are very grateful for all their help.
