In November I suffered an MI, from my 1st experience as a patient. I really have to congratulate our NHS for the amazing treatment, from being taken by the Paramedics to the Victoria Hospital & my examination & in the Emergency room to my stay in CCU, I couldn't fault any member of staff each & every one of them were very professional, but most importantly kind & caring.
My next experience was transferring to The Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh which again was super efficient, I was immediately put at ease & every procedure that was planned was explained to me, I had a Stent inserted & traveled home next day. This is not where it ends though, I was contacted by the Cardiac Nurse Vivienne, she visited me in my home, she discussed my ongoing medication treatment & what was planned which I found extremely helpful, I had several visits with Vivienne at Glenrothes Hospital which again proved to be very helpful & was discharged from her care 3 weeks ago with the comforting sentence " don't hesitate to contact me if you have a problem" which again meant so much to me.... again it doesn't end there, I received notification to attend Cardiac Rehab classes which I thoroughly enjoy the staff again are so professional with a very friendly nature.
I know my story probably sounds similar to most you have heard before, but as a retired Nurse I have to congratulate the NHS for the outstanding quality of care I received. Being a Nurse on the receiving end of an illness is a frightening experience as it is for anyone. Thank you to all the department's & highly trained staff that I had the honor to meet & be the recipient of their truly outstanding care.
