I don't know why I didn't do this review year ago, when I was admitted! I was brought in by ambulance as an emergency , having a heart attack . Not only were the paramedics exemplary and certainly saved my life ( I have commended them separately to the Ambulance service ) but from the moment I was received to the moment I left a few days later, treatment was fast, efficient , good humoured and all that one could wish - well maybe I could have done without one of the heart ward doctors saying "now this is going to hurt" and then going away for 15 minutes before she came back and did the thing , which did indeed hurt . Still, not much to complain about I guess . Down in the 'stent shop' where they first take you, I don't remember much , except that I actually felt safe, despite all the stuff going on, just like the tv! Up in the ward, great nursing, and doctoring and explanations about damage to heart and drugs and all the sort of stuff you need to leave with . And afterwards , the Cardiac Rehab programme, absolutely free and very, very good , great gym, lectures and follow up.
