“I called 999 because my wife was breathless, she was vomiting and she had pains in her stomach. As I was talking to them she was getting worse and they told me to put her on the floor and to make her body flat”.

The paramedics arrived in the morning to take some tests, but told Fabian "the hospital won’t take her, she is not a priority. She did not stay very long and she went outside to write her report and posted it through the door".
