"Hospital stay in CCU"

About: Royal Bolton Hospital

I was admitted to Royal Bolton Hospital in Mid December, with heart failure. I was seen quickly in A&E and quite quickly ended up on an assessment ward and then onto CCU, where I spent approximately just over a week. The staff on CCU, especially the Nursing staff and in particular the staff nurses were a credit to the hospital I was extremely anxious and probably quite frightened. I expected a high quality of care, which I received, but what pleased me the most was the high level of compassion and warmth shown towards me by the staff, and I wish to commend them for this. They were very understanding and put me at ease. It made my stay as comfortable as was possible. Thank you CCU.
