I had a very bad fall last sunday at 7. 30am. Blacked out and crashed my head on the kitchen floor which is concrete base covered in Ceramic tiles. My husband who is disabled and had the living room Door shut heard the bang and came in to see what had happened.
He phoned for my eldest daughter who only lives 1o minutes away
And she phoned for the ambulance. The paramedics (pete *& kathy)
Were wonderful and put me at ease straight away ( i am 80 years of age)
I had a ct scan on my head and neck as i had a lump as big as a golf ball but it was clear i then had a bcg which found a slight problem.
I cannot speak highly enough of the staff at a & e and could not have been treated any better if i had been a private patient
