"Great care on ward 6"

About: Heartlands Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I had a heart attack on Tuesday, and was rushed to Heartlands Hospital, on arrival the team were waiting for me and were very quick with their procedures and rushed me straight into theatre, where they put a balloon in my artery and fitted a stent, I was told I had a massive heart attack, but without their speed and care, I don't think I would be here today.

I would like to sincerely thank the surgeons, doctors nurses and staff for their great care and professionalism, at ward 6 CCU.
