"Everyone was caring"

About: Northern General Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

My heart attack happened at 07.00am and I was in recovery at the Northern General Hospital after having a stent implant at 08.50. I received excellent care and information in the Chesterman ward. My stay at the CCU was also excellent as the nurses cared, were informative and everyone from the consultant to the physiotherapist were helpful and caring. The downside of my experience was whilst I was in Chesterman ward, I had no sleep or rest due to other patients shouting and calling out during the night. After a heart attack I felt I needed more peaceful surroundings to enable me to rest.
