"Intensive care for my husband"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a relative),

My husband developed breathing difficulty in the early hours of the morning and I dialed NHS 111 who in turn summoned and ambulance. Oxygen was provided and he was conveyed to East Surrey Hospital where he was diagnosed with pneumonia with a deteriorating condition. He was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and received close observation nursing for all the time that he was there. His health was restored to normal in a record 8 days - fantastic treatment from a first class National Health Service that is subjected to too much adverse, demoralising criticism.
