I am an elderly gent who is disabled and lives alone. Tonight one of the veins in my leg decided to burst. I have had this happen before so knew what to do. But after trying very hard for nearly an hr I couldn't stop the flow so had to call an ambulance. This arrived very quickly and I met Paramedics S Moreland and M Pavey.
They were so kind to me and put me at ease immediately. I could not have asked for better service. I have had to have ambulances before which I might add have always been wonderful. But these two went one step further I felt to put me at ease. The treatment was excellent and they even made sure I ate something before they left as I am a diabetic and hadn't eaten since lunchtime.
Many many complain about the NHS but I have only praise. In fact I would not be here today if not for the prompt actions of Paramedics and the Staff 19 years ago. So all my thoughts go out to you all and my very heartfelt thanks for all you have done for me.
