"Heart Bypass Surgery"

My partner was a patient in November and December 2015..he had triple bypass surgery early december..The level of care was outstandin. As he is diabetic he had some complications post surgery..the nursing care he received was exceptional in Critical Care and step down to HDU.the doctors anaesthetists all involved in his round clock care ..for him to make a full recovery..Cannot thank the staff and Hospital enough for what they did to make him well again. He's back at work and enjoying life and soo much better. There were tough times throughout and waiting for the surgery ..for him to stabilise and then postponements due to junior doctors strike yet been due to this all went ahead.there are many people whom we would like to thank and whom do a job which you just cannot put a price on..Thankfully he made it through and we would like to express out thanks and praise for the wonderful work and care you give and for all that you did for him and us.
