"Heart surgery at northern general hospital sheffield"

About: Northern General Hospital / Accident and emergency Northern General Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

After being admitted to accident and emergency I had a heart valve operation. I found staff caring, knowledgeable, competent and approachable.

I would suggest that communication between professionals could be improved though.
