"Skilled and cheerful care following stroke"
Posted by Geordie Lad (as ),
I suffered a stroke during the night.
The Northumbria ambulance crew wasted no time and took me straight up to the Borders General Hospital at Melrose where I was treated by the stroke team including the consultant immediately upon admission.
I subsequently spent a month on the stroke rehabiltation ward where I received highly skilled professional treatment from doctors, nurses and physiotherapists and all the remedial staff. Without their expertise and cheerful optimism I would certainly have been severely disabled or indeed may have died.
