I wanted to thank the paramedics who attend for their kindness and reassurance. I have an alarm button which I activated when suffering from abdomen / chest pains which felt particularly severe. The people who monitor the alarms called my neighbour who came round to see me immediately and they called for an ambulance – I’ve no idea whether they called 111 or 999! The paramedic arrived very quickly and gave a thorough check up blood tests, palpitated my tummy, took my blood pressure and monitored my heart.
The medics were so kind and reassuring, they did all they could to ensure I could stay at home and not be taken into hospital. I am so very grateful for this.
