"Following a heart attack"

About: Lincoln County Hospital

On a reason visit to Lincoln about to set off back to Lancashire my partner suffered chest pain, we arrived at A&E seen within 5 minutes, ECG done, diagnosed a heart attack and within 15 minutes he was fitted with a stent, no damage to his heart due to the efficient service. He was admitted to the ward where he had excellent treatment and was so well looked after, the ward staff both on Johnson ward & Jackson ward where excellent and very knowledgeable and kept my partner well informed.

We are so grateful for every bodies help.

I work for the NHS and I think had we been at home my partner would not have had the rapid treatment he got in Lincoln.

Well done to all.
