"my care in the CCU"

About: North Manchester General Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

Having blacked out while moving my car I was taken to NMGH.

After a very short stay in A&E I was transferred to G4 Coronary Care Unit. Every single member of staff reassured me and helped me through the first steps of my impending treatment. An assessment was necessary over the next couple of days. During this time Sister Pickup and staff ensured I was comfortable, which surprised me a little as the unit was full at the time.

Whilst there I was able to see that all other patients received the same reception often staying on after their shift ended to see the procedure was completed.

My pacemaker fitted and preparations made for my discharge were organized including my new medicine regime.
