"First class A & E service"

About: Arrowe Park Hospital

I attended at A&E Reception with prolonged excessively fast heartbeat at 195 beats per minute . I was seen by triage nurses within about 5 minutes, and taken in a very few minutes to the resuscitation unit , where I was seen immediately by a doctor and their team and received immediate treatment , and a diagnosis of supra ventricular tachycardia confirmed after further investigations involving ECG , blood tests and chest x ray. I was then observed to ensure stability, and discharged after about 3 hours. I cannot fault the excellent , cheerful and courteous treatment which I received , and thank everyone who was involved
