"The NHS is helping me live after my heart attack."

Posted by ROCKANROLDIE (as ),
I had a heart attack five years ago and received wonderful treatment in Norwich & Norfolk University Hospital.
Since then I have had several emergency admissions to the cardiac section of Cheltenham General Hospital, Gloucestershire, where I have received fantastic care from all concerned. I do mean all, from surgeons and consultants through to all staff on the wards.
Being far from wealthy, I depend absolutely on the NHS, and I cannot speak highly enough of the care I have received, and still receive, through that system.
I am living a relatively healthy and productive life, which I hope still contributes to society. Yet, to put it bluntly, without the NHS I would be dead.
I will defend the NHS as long as I live.
