"CCU and cardiac rehab - excellent"

About: St Peter's Hospital (Chertsey)

Anything else?

I had 2 short stays in CCU at St Peters in May 2013 after a heart attack, the insertion of 2 stents and then a false alarm. On both occassions the cardiology and CCU teams were marvellous. I felt they really cared about me as an individual and that I was in safe hands. Thank you to the team. I then followed the cardiac rehab programme at St Peters for 6 weeks which was fantastic. The nurses and physiotherapist were so friendly, supportive and informative, it really helped me rebuild confidence and develop a more healthy routine to carry forward. The programme is a real community and it was good to meet other people with a similar experience, discuss concerns and exchange tips. I believe my recovery was improved significantly and I highly recommend it to anyone offered a place. In my view it is a MUST. Many thanks - you are a great team! Laura W
