"Heart attack"

About: Chorley & South Ribble Hospital

I was referred to Chorley Cardiac Unit by my doctor after suffering chest pains. On arrival I was given test which showed that I had a heart attack. I was then kept in and given medication over a 1 week before being transferred to Blackpool Victoria Hospital for an angigram and subsequent triple bypass. Whilst in Chorley I found the staff to be on a patient level with no task to small. I felt I was treated like a human being and not just another patient. Thank you very much. All this happened just after Christmas and after my 3 week stay within both hospitals I felt greatly appreciative of what was done for me. I am 72 years of age.
