Whats it like if you or any of your relatives or friends have to
go to hospital. Do they wait for hours on a trolley or are they seen
quickly. I have spent all night on a trolley in the A&E. Not
a good experience.
What have your experiences been like.
Take care
Gerald.

In Pembrokeshire if you become ill you might go by Ambulance to Withybush Hospital Haverfordwest but if its full the Ambulance
will then take you to Carmarthen Hospital. If unable to fit you in there off you go to one of the Swansea Hospitals. This run arond may take several hours.
If its life threatening From Haverfordwest to Swansea will take 40 minutes with all the blues and twos and a police escort. This saved my life.
Good health

PACE MAKERS
Pace Makers enable some people to have a better and more enjoyable life as well as perhaps keeping them live.
The Pace Maker operation means opening the chest, inserting the Pace Maker and attaching wires to the heart.
These wires need heart tissue to grow around them fixing the wires into the heart.
For this reason people who have had a Pacemaker Fitted need to proceed with caution for several weeks
and not jump and gallop around.
On discharge from hospital the patient will be given a long list of do's and dont's.
Ignore them means you are stupid and may die.

With all the woes facing the NHS, we can still be seen and treated in a real emergency. Mind you with locations we live in we can have some very scenic journeys on the way to treatment.

Stick with the beat and keep well
