"Great care after Heart Attack"

About: Heartlands Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I would like to thank the cardiology team and ward6/Ccu staff for all their support and care towards my recovery after my heart attack just over a week ago. From A&E to the cath lab and onto the ward I recieved the best possible care I could ask for. All the staff doctors, nurses, heathcares and rehab team were fantastic and I can not give them enough praise.

I am now on the road to recovery and getting better day by day all with the help and support of the staff on ward 6 at heartlands hospital. With great appreciation and thanks to you all.
