"Excellent care at A and E"

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

I was taken by ambulance to a and e after I collapsed at home, the paramedics, whose names I can't remember unfortunately, we're fantastic treating me at home and transporting me to hospital and kept my spirits up. I was looked after on the ward. The staff were all very kind, caring and professional treating everyone with dignity and respect, including a heavily intoxicated gentleman who in my opinion seemed difficult to deal with! I would like to pass on my sincere thanks for my treatment.
