"I was admitted on March 14th, ..."

About: Manchester Royal Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was admitted on March 14th, originally re directed from Bolton the day previous after a fall that broke my ribs, however after further investigation it was found that i also experienced a heart attack thus taken to MRI, the medical team there took fantastic care of me having to have Angiplast surgery to locate and fit 3 stents.

All the staff there were both caring and understanding and for that i am most grateful and express my thanks to all concerned.

What could be improved

On leaving hospital after 8 days i was a little bemused that i was not given any self aftercare advice.

Simply given medication to take home, i am not sure as to the extent of damage my heart suffered and the recovery process (if any) required, ie time off work or when to take exercise etc.

Maybe you could advise via this email ?

Many thanks again
