"I liked the prompt service I received ..."

About: Hemel Hempstead Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I liked the prompt service I received by the A&E staff when I attended the department in atrial fibrilation.

I was seen by 4 doctors with in minutes of entering the department and taken into resus. Test were done and I was given clot busting medication.

I eventually underwent cardioversion in the CCU department after having an echo done on my heart.

The nurses and medics were fantastic. I felt very well looked after.

What could be improved

The follow up appointment to see my cardiologist was prompt within 3 weeks of me having thecardioversion. But I've had to wait 11 weeks to have a treadmill test.
