I am an eighty year old reasonably healthy woman on holiday in Penzance. I had been experiencing some odd pains in chest and breathlessness called 111 Sunday 6pm. A lovely paramedic arrived very quickly did all the tests, in his opinion I was not having a heart attack but said I should go in to the hospital to make sure. They got me into The Royal Cornwell very smartly. Arrived 7pm Sunday! Quite busy but very efficient. I had every test known to man twice! ! it was a very long night but the hardworking nurses were wonderful I can't speak too highly of all the A&E dept staff. For me the result was very good not heart, but my old arthritic spine giving me heart type spasms. So all well, once again thanks to you all.
