After informing the A&E department of my symptoms, (chest pains), I was seen in under 10 minutes. The response was excellent, I was wired up and had had an ECG in about 20 minutes of my arrival. Although the department was very busy the staff were all very caring and considerate.
I was moved on to the CCU (Manvers Ward), where I had a stay of one week. The staff here were superb, their quality of care couldn't be faulted. At all times I was treated with kindness, understanding and compassion. Both doctors and nursing staff kept me fully informed of my treatment at all times.
Within 2 days of my discharge I had received a follow up appointment at outpatients and a phone call from the rehabilitation nurse. The follow up care is very thorough.
No-one wishes to be in ill health, but if I should ever have a recurrence of my problem I would not worry about a return to the hospital. After this experience I know my care will be of the best.
