A huge thank you to under-pressure NHS
MY disabled husband was taken ill and needed hospital attention on the December 29 2016. Admittedly it took time to get an ambulance organised after going down the route of first calling 111, but finally one arrived with crew who were kindness itself.
Yes, we did have to wait, with my husband on a trolley for a couple of hours and yes, it was a bit like World War II in Hillingdon A&E, but the staff were working their socks off, I don’t know how they do it, it was amazing to witness. The stress they work under is simply intolerable, far too much to do and too many sick people to care for with not enough doctors.
My husband and I just want to say a huge thank you to the ambulance crew and all members of A&E. We can only hope that the Government will do their utmost to support the NHS in the coming months before things break down completely. Medical staff are trying their hardest but are pushed beyond their limits. SHIRLEY & TERRY ROUS Beacon Close Uxbridge
