"My wife fainted whilst makning ..."

About: Royal Oldham Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

My wife fainted whilst makning a drink and cut her chin quite badly. I took her to A &E where she was seen within minutes. A precautionary ECG revealed that some time earlier she had suffered a silent heart attack which she had been unaware of. She is now undergoing tests to establish the best way of controlling this ongoing heart condition.

What could be improved
