"Sensationally good care"
Posted by Dabble934 (as ),
I live in an isolated ex-farm house and collapsed with a massive heart attack. The speed and skill of services were stunning, from the doctor who fought to keep me alive, the police car crew who got me to a waiting ambulance half a mile away on the A66, the ambulance crew and paramedics who rushed me safely 25 miles to Carlisle Hospital and major surgery, the surgeon flown in by helicopter from Dumfries to operate as soon as I arrived. All this was sensationally good and the post operative (including intensive) care at both Carlisle and Penrith hospitals has been exemplary. My profoundest thanks to all involved.
