"Health care"

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

My husband Terry became unwell when we were about to go home to Crawley by train at Portsmouth harbour the staff were so attentive they sent for an ambulance. They got my husband into the ambulance and that in itself was an achievement as he can be very stubborn he is not to good with strangers by the way his nickname is Grumpy. The two technians were absulutly so patient they were so thorough .they then said he would be advised to go to hospital.I thought to myself you have got no chance but they talked to him and he said yes .the staff at the hospital were just as good I have got to say a huge thank you to staff but a bigger thank you to the two ambulance staff they are great at their job thank you so much
