About: The James Cook University Hospital The James Cook University Hospital Middlesbrough TS4 3BW
my husband was admitted to James Cook hospital on 25 August this year following two heart attacks. He underwent a triple bypass on 29 August, which was initially successful. Unfortunately, problems developed a few days later and he had to have more surgery to remove a clot round his heart. Following this, his organs began to deteriorate very quickly and he became very very poorly. He is 78 and asthmatic. He contracted chest infections. This wonderful cardiac team, from the consultant to the CICU literally brought him back from the brink. Aftercare then in the HDU saw him discharged from hospital after a long seven weeks! Not only were the staff medically competent but they treated me and the family with utmost respect and kept us informed of all the procedures, progress or otherwise. Thank you, James Cook.
