"My angioplas operation"

About: Basildon University Hospital / Cardiology Basildon University Hospital / General surgery Broomfield Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I was unfortunate enough to have an angina attack recently.

The ambulance team took me to Broomfield hospital who then made room for me and eventually put me in a cardiac ward and then finally to Terling Ward. Whilst there I was given excellent care by the doctors and nurses and an angiogram within 24 hours. I was transferred to Basildon hospital on f days after the attack for an angioplas operation which took place the next morning and was successful. I was discharged two days later a “new man”. I would like to thank the team of doctors, technicians and nurses who looked after and cared me so well, and expertly.

Only too happy to help, I have just remembered the name of the Basildon Ward it was "Roding".

Many thanks
