"Attended A&E for chest pain"

About: Salford Royal

I would like to thank many of the staff for looking after me yesterday evening (30/10/2015) as I attended A&E with chest pain. I was seen by a triage nurse within 10 minutes of arrival and told to wait to see a clinician. Unfortunately whilst I was waiting in the waiting area to be seen I fell considerably ill and started having heart palpitations and felt one of my seizures coming on. My partner went to reception and was redirected to the triage nurse who rushed me into Resus. Not long after being rushed in, I had a seizure. I would like to thank the staff whom helped me come round and administered the medication I needed without any delay. I would like to thank one in particular because even though they were tired they didn't let slip off their patients and therefore looked after me very well and chased up all the tests I had done. Salford A&E staff should be proud of what they do and I hope they continue to hold the great communication, teamwork and right frame of minds not letting their minds slip elsewhere. Thank you yet again.
