"the care I received from the Blue Angels"

About: Central London Community Healthcare NHS Trust Hammersmith Hospital / Cardiology West Middlesex University Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

Initially, the D. N, s called on me every day for two months at Christmas 2011. They never missed a beat all over the holiday period. It is not just what they do medically, it is also the passion they have for the job, and the compassion they show to the patient, and family.

To bring us up to date, Jan 2014. I received a new pacemaker at Hammersmith Hosp. Early bleeding problems arose, causing me to seek treatment firstly, (Thurs. ev. ) my own G. P, s. (Friday evening) had to summon Ambulance to take me to A. & E. Alas a junior doctor was unable to help. (Sat. ev. called District Nurse help line number. Reassuring me, they arrived, two of the Blue Angels, cleaned and dressed the wound, left me feeling comfortable and re-assured. On the Monday went back to Cardio ward Hammersmith, Doctor stated the D. N, s had done a fantastic job with the dressing.

What can I tell you, Given the turmoil within the N. H. S. they behave above and beyond any story one could write about them. All of them! !

Thank every one of them for me.
