Today, Tuesday 7th July 2015, my Dr. referred me to A&E with suspected bleeding in my stomach. Within 10 minutes, an ambulance arrived and I was attended by two very professional,efficient and extremely pleasant crew-a paramedic and a medical technician. I was immediately put at my ease while my blood pressure and heart rate were monitored as we drove to the hospital. On arrival at the hospital, I was immediately taken to a cubicle by a welcoming and very reassuring Sister who continued to monitor my progress, checking on me at very regular intervals. The Dr. was equally friendly and reassuring and took great care to explain what was happening. I had various blood tests and the results were processed very quickly. A nurse then phoned my husband to say I was ready to come home, without further treatment . I cannot thank the staff enough for all their kindness, courtesy and professionalism. Susan Tindall
