"My journey of care"

About: Hairmyres Hospital / Emergency department Scottish Ambulance Service

(as the patient),

I was at home and experienced a full panic attack. Unsure what was going on I dialled 999 and the ambulance crew were very reassuring and calming. However as my blood pressure was elevated I was taken to A&E at Hairmyres Hospital. The staff could not have been more professional, caring and efficient, they reassured me, checked bloods, ECG, pulse and blood pressure.
