Decided to blog this as well.

—At 1600 hours Saturday 14/11 My doctor phoned having received some results from the blood test I had Saturday  morning:

 He said he  was sending me to South Coast Hospital by ambulance:

 I was also told that there would not be lights or sirens

but there was—-

 After the ambulance staff did their “obs” they treated me like I was having an heart attack –

 They were skilled at their job and had a great sense of humour:

I was treated with respect:

Given all information  about what tests were being done and why,

 as well as the results.

I believe one of the reasons for this is South Coast is a country hospital.

I worked in a major  city hospital in the 1980s

on one occasion I was told off by the charge nurse for spoiling patients.

All I was doing was treating them as people
