"The NHS saved my life last week"

The NHS saved my life Last week.
On that day, my left leg turned blue and doubled in size so I was sent to Arbroath A&E at about 6pm. There, I was seen within ten minutes by kind, helpful, knowledgeable and funny staff. The Doctor even picked up on my brand of humour and bantered with me which went a long way to keeping me calm. The next day, I had a scan and was given medications, pain killers, sexy stockings, follow-up appointments and complete thorough medical care all without hassle. On both days the staff were wonderful. Arbroath infirmary staff, you are fabulous. NHS24, also fabulous. Springfield East Medical, again top notch care from you all. I feel so grateful.
A week has now passed and although I'm still in pain, am managing to do many of my normal light activities (a bit slowly) and am making daily progress. Thanks for all of your help and patience in answering all of the silly questions I asked. Working in the medical field is tough and all of the lovely people who do this job should be praised.
