"I have no fault to find with the doctors"

About: Northern General Hospital / Cardiology Sheffield PCT / District nursing Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust

(as the patient),

I went into Northern General Hospital on the 23rd April and was on Chesterman ward 2. Dr. Grech was my doctor, he was marvellous. The nurses and assistants were very good ad everything was very clean. I had Angioplasty and was just in overnight. The worst parts was waiting four hours for a prescription to come home. When I arrived home I had a terrible heart pain and from ringing 999 within 2 minutes the paramedics were at my house. The ambulance was here five minutes later. They called the paramedic Jim and he was great. The ambulance men were very good also. Then at casualty I was treated very well and after lots of tests I was allowed home again. Since then I have had community cardiac nurses to see me and ring me up. The follow up has been great. I have no fault to find with doctors. However, parking at Northern General is terrible and needs altering.
