Having recently experienced a heart attack, I know what makes this country different from any other. I wish to thank the two paramedics, ARI A and E staff, Cath Lab staff, CCU staff and cardiac ward staff. I have never been so humbled by their professionalism and dedication to their work. I am still amazed that I never saw a frown or any sign of impatience or frustration, despite the pressures, difficult patients and sometimes chaos around them. Without exception, you are all very special people.
It is also worth noting that we now have the equipment and resources in Aberdeen to allow our NHS staff to save more lives in emergency situations.
If you ever hear anyone denigrating our ambulance and hospital staff, please put them right. I certainly will! I now know how lucky we are to have these special people and the NHS.
