My husband who is 80 felt dizzy and passed out...

Resolved Question:

My husband who is 80 felt dizzy and passed out in the carpark walking to our car last evening in Manchester. Getting a 17 stone man to his feet was not easy. After sitting for some time, we managed to get him onto his knees — he pulled onto the car, and I lifted and pushed and eventually he was upright (I'm 76). We are going to the Lake District Sunday/Monday 27th/28 April and then flying to Spain on the 29th April for ten days. Where can I get him scanned and checked out tomorrow or Saturday without waiting for an appointment at the doctors. Can I take him straight to Stepping Hill A & E this evening please. Mrs Joan XXXXXXXXX (wife of Ernest)
