Caring touch of an efficient NHS

Last week, I had a urine infection, felt dizzy and passed out, somewhat foolishly, at the top of the stairs in my mother's house. I woke up at the bottom, having broken her stairlift.

She called the paramedics (as I'm deaf), who duly arrived and checked me over. I was then whisked off to hospital, where I was treated with endless courtesy.

Thankfully I had not broken or fractured any bones, but was detained overnight as a precaution.

The whole episode showed the health service at its most professional and efficient, yet still caring.
