At 0100 or thereabouts ambulance called.First responder arrived within 10 mins quickly followed by the ambulance.They were brilliant and decided I should be admitted to A&E.
On arrival I was seen by nurses and a little later by the duty doctor.This was Sat morning so it was pretty chaotic in there.I Was taken into serious cases ward where I was visited by a Cardio consultant and transferred to CCU.where I was wired up and bedded all by about 0330.All the staff I had contact with were cheerful attentive and caring..I stayed in for five days during which time I was visited by consultants,had an angiogram and numerous blood tests.When it was decided to discharge me I was given advice,medication and a form telling me what had gone on from the consultant.in the CCU I could get acuppa at any time and the staff (day and night ) were always willing and helpful.The food was fine and I the whole experience was a credit to the CCU staff.I think the contract cleaners should be better supervised (the nursing staff have no time for that in the mornings)
Well doneCCU andQA.An excellent performance!
