"In one day you made a sad worried old couple..."

About: Musgrove Park Hospital

My wife who is 76yrs and generally in good health had a very bad night little sleep, pains in chest and shoulder area. We decided not to call help, but first thing morning visit local doctor. After tests the Doctor advised she immediately visit Musgrove, as heart problems could not be ruled out. 20 mile trip to Hospital crew were very friendly and administered drugs to relive her pain. Reception at A&Ewas very friendly and reassuring. Very quickly into treatment ward, my wife cannot speak too highly of Nurses & Doctor on M ward. After full ECG and blood tests she was free to go home. I was able to be at her side most of 3 hrs she received tests. We drove home very happy, when few hours earlier we feared the very worst. Thanks to all.

Also car parking no problem
