"emergency admission for heart attack"

About: Southampton General Hospital

My father suffered a heart attack on June 5th and from the excellent prompt care of the ambulance team, the expertise the of the cardiac care unit right up to the time he was declared fit to return home my mother and I can not fault the attention he received. The student nurses in particular were kind and responsible. It was hard leaving him there but we were reassured every step of the way. There are no words to describe how much admiration and gratitude we have for stressed staff in a very busy hospital. Thank you for saving his life.
