    Thank You For Saving My 86 Year Old Dad’s Life

    “RBH A&E, Royal Bournemouth Hospital and South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust. Thank you for saving my 86 year old dad’s life after he got a piece of gammon lodged in his throat and was unable to breathe. Apart from that amazing feat, the staff were professional, patient, compassionate and also able to have a laugh with us ! I especially want to thank the nurse who was 9 hours into her 13 hour shift who could not do enough for us. Let’s look after our N.H.S. It is PRECIOUS.”…

    Tools To Understand The Risks Involved

    “OK…so the thing is…I was a bit of a Joker in my early college years and with joking around came sleeping around. This wasn’t helped by having a healthy, or maybe not so healthy, narcissistic attitude toward life. The young are victim to this. Without the NHS at the right time, in the right place, without any monetary cost I would have put more people at risk while not getting the right information and tools to understand the risks involved and to make an informed decision.”…

I came home to find him semi-collapsed; as a nurse, my training was useless – this was my boy and I couldn’t see past that. At his most vulnerable, I had to hand him over to my colleagues. And what a tremendous set of people you are. I trusted you with my most precious possession, my 25 year-old son, and you didn’t let me down, caring for him like your own. Three months on and one thyroid less he is doing wonderfully. I cannot thank my colleagues enough, or our NHS. What would we do without it?”…

Three doctors couldn’t decide what was my best option. I got on a plane and went back to London where I went into the NHS hospital in King’s Cross. They were fantastic.

I’m most grateful to the NHS for having a department open and ready to welcome those who have been injured accidentally and need immediate help. In April of 2014 I thought I had a potentially career ending injury and was able to be seen my doctors right away by going to A&E. I was miles from home and the way the doctors managed my situation was incredibly kind, confident and professional. I knew I was in safe hands.

There is nothing that can compare to knowing that no matter what, your health and the health of loved ones can be managed by trained professionals when most needed.”…
