"A complete end to end service"

About: Salisbury District Hospital

My episode started on leavin the gym, when I felt clammy. I managed to get myself home, hoping it would pass, it didn't. So I dialled 999 the operator stayed on the line until the paramedic arrived, this was reassuring. The paramedic took over diagnosed a heart attack, the ambulance arrived and I was whisked away to Salisbury cardic unit. There I was taken care by a great team and astent was inserted whilst I was still conscious all very incredible. I was shown the before and after photographs. Amazing. I was then taken to recovery. All this happened in about 90 mins. Recovery kept me plied with tea until a bed was ready on the ward again great care on the ward. This happened on Friday morning and I was discharged on Sunday lunch time. Everybody involved put the word "team" into teamworking
