I had collapsed with severe abdominal pain at Paignton Zoo. Paramedics were called and the first one came by car. He was extremely nice and thoughtful and gave me pain relief straight away. I was then taken to a&e by an ambulance. I was told I had to wait in the minors area but I would continue to have gas and air as pain relief. Within 20 minutes I was called in by a lovely nurse who took my details and asked what had happened. I was also pushed into the room by wheel chair rather than made to walk. I was then called into the Majors part of a&e where I was seen by a lovely doctor and was given more pain relief. He then admitted me to a ward where they also treated me very well. All in all I had a lovely experience at this hospital
