  • Am glad you had a positive outcome. We must all come to your area from the Midlands. At the moment its awful here. All hospitals are full, the ambulance service are backed up waiting to get patients admitted. This includes the new QE in Birmingham, they are opening wards in the old hospital. The ambulance service said that one night they didn't have any available ambulances in Warwickshire, west Midlands and another one. They had to call upon Staffordshire to do a 999 call in Rugby over an hour away.

    Keeping everything crossed we don't need it.

  • Great recovery Rushbrook!! Glad you're ok now, take it easy chuck!! XX

  • Glad to hear your ok, I was born at queen Elizabeth's in king's Lynn. Sithy
