I had a heart by-pass operation in January and have had episodes of breathlessness on 3 occasions since then. On one occasion the paramedic who attended was able to treat me at home but on the other two times I was taken to hospital for treatment.
The paramedics and ambulance teams have come from Liskard and Saltash, I’d like them to know how much I appreciate their service and to send them a big ‘thank you’. They do a very thorough job – I get a more thorough check up than when I see the doctor!
On this latest occasion the paramedic called for an ambulance as he felt I really needed to be in hospital, however there were no ambulances available. He stayed with me all the time until an ambulance was available and till it arrived. He was absolutely brilliant.
