"Best treatment I've ever received"

About: Hammersmith Hospital

I visited the cardiology diagnostic syncope unit for a tilt table test here. I wasn't nervous upon arriving as they sent me lots of information in the post explaining what will happen. During my appointment a syncope nurse specialist asked me about my history - very attentive. Then the nurse talked through again what will be happening. Afterwards it the nurse told me it was a positive result and i have been able to begin to be the best I can be with my condition. I feel very supported and cared for here at the Hammersmith Hospital. They have sorted out being referred back to the cardiology team for me as my g p surgery failed to do so in March 2016. They are an extremely dedicated and passionate team and I'm so glad to have found them. If I have any flare ups or problems with my heart rate I can contact them for advise or suggestions. Above and beyond such an incredible people. Highly recommend for other patients with vasovagal syncope or POTS.
