"PCI & treatment following a heart attack"

About: Southampton General Hospital

May I take this opportunity to thank the cardiology team and especially the consultants for their most professional intervention and nursing care following my recent heart attack. The entire process from admission through to PCI and aftercare is a tribute to the established high level of cardiology at Southampton General. The nurses conducted their duties deftly and always with humour. I felt that I was being welcomed into an extended family.The lead nurse in my discharge ward, also carried out her duties with humour and professionalism. But finally, the skill of my Consultant in performing the PCI and his thoughtfulness in providing me a copy of the 'before and after' angioplasty image leaves me deeply indebted to the NHS and especially to your fine and efficiently managed hospital.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with is. Your feedback will be passed onto the teams who looked after you. It is always good to hear when a particular approach has been appreciated and I am sure the consultant who shared the angioplasty images will consider your feedback for his future practice.
